News release


Keswick residents encouraged to register to vote for upcoming by-election

Wednesday 1 November 2017

Allerdale Borough Council is reminding Keswick residents that the deadline to register to vote for the upcoming by-election is Tuesday 7 November.

The by-election will be held on Thursday 23 November to fill a vacancy in the Keswick East ward of the Parish Council.

Residents are also reminded to respond to their household enquiry form, even if they have previously registered to vote, to ensure their details are correct and they are eligible to participate in the by-election.

Those who are unable to get to their polling station can apply for a postal vote, or change existing postal or proxy votes, by Wednesday 8 November at 5pm. Alternatively, you can apply for a proxy vote by 5pm on Wednesday 15 November. This is where a nominated person – who must be a registered elector - attends the elector’s polling station to cast a vote on their behalf. Anyone wishing to apply for a postal or proxy vote should contact the Council’s Electoral Services team on 01900 702550, or email

The postal vote packs will be sent out on Monday 13 November. Please read the instructions in the pack carefully before completing the enclosed postal vote statement and the ballot paper, then send them back to Allerdale House in the prepaid envelope provided so that they arrive before 10pm on 23 November. Alternatively they can also be returned by hand to Allerdale House by 10pm on 23 November, and on the day of the election they may be handed into either of the two polling stations in the ward between 7am and 10pm.

Full details of the candidates and the notice of election can be found on Allerdale Borough Council’s website at

For all queries about any aspect of the election please call the Electoral Services team on 01900 702550 or email
