Carlisle City Council is urging Botcherby residents to make their mark and take up their right to vote at this Thursday’s (7 January) Carlisle City Council By Election.
Preparations are now well underway for the By Election. Poll cards have been sent to all eligible voters. All polling stations open at 7am and close at 10pm. Voters who have requested a postal vote are also reminded to send in their vote.
Jason Gooding, Carlisle City Council’s Town Clerk & Chief Executive, said:
“We want as many voters as possible to come out and make their mark. Local government provides a wide-range of services to residents and elections allow them the opportunity to have their say.”
The By Election will be held on Thursday, 7 January.
The first ballot boxes are expected to arrive soon after the polling stations close at 10pm. The count and the declaration of results will take place at the Harraby Community Hub. The proceedings will start shortly after 10pm.
The four polling stations are: Harraby Community Hub, Botcherby Family Centre, portable cabin at Botcherby Community Centre and Portable Cabin at Cumrew Close.
