Election on the 5th!!!
This is a big election for Elmbridge – if residents want local representation from people who live in and love Molesey they need to turn out and vote MRA on the 5th May or send in postal votes by the 19th April. All wards across the borough need to elect their repressentatives for the coming years; if the MRA memebers are not in the council, the residents influence on the council is greatly reduced. The MRA candidates are almost all Molesey residents, and all candidates care about how our community evolves.
Don’t be complacent – Be proactive!
GET REGISTERED AND GET OUT TO VOTE!
Full details for getting regisetered for voting can be found here.
If you prefer, you can receive your ballot papers by post, instead of voting in person at your polling station. You can apply permanently or for a limited period, for example, if you are going away on holiday. Your ballot papers will be sent to your home address unless you ask for them to be sent to another address, for example, if you are at university. If you want your ballot papers sent to another address you must include the reason on the form.
Each voter must fill in a separate application form. You must sign and date the form and include a specimen of your signature and date of birth. For security, these will be used to confirm your identity when you vote by post. We will not use this information for any other purpose.
The deadline to apply to vote by post is 11 working days before an election.
