Notices of election published for the PCC election

18 March 2016

Notices of Election for the scheduled Cumbria Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) election on 5 May have been published.

Nomination papers are available for the PCC election from the Police Area Returning Officer (PARO) at South Lakeland District Council (SLDC).

Completed nomination papers can be submitted from 21 March 2016 and candidates are urged to submit their papers as early as possible.

The close of nominations (the deadline for submission of nomination papers) is 4pm on Thursday, 7 April 2016.

Further details about the elections on 5 May can be found at: http://www.allerdale.gov.uk/council-and-democracy/councillors-democracy-election/elections-2016.aspx . This is the second time PCC elections have been held, following the election of Richard Rhodes as the county’s first elected Police and Crime Commissioner for Cumbria in November 2012.

The PCC’s role is to act as the public’s voice on how policing is carried out in Cumbria.

They will also be responsible for setting the force’s budget and deciding what its priorities and strategy should be.

Residents are also being encouraged to make sure they are on the Register of Electors so they can have their say in the PCC and local elections in May.

If you think you’re not registered, or if you have moved recently, the closing date for registering to vote in the May elections is Monday, 18 April 2016.

It is easy to register, just go online to www.gov.uk/register-to-vote

Applications for new proxy votes must be received by 5pm on Tuesday, 26 April 2016. Applications for proxy votes because of a medical emergency or for work/service reasons, which have occurred after 5pm on 26 April can be accepted until 5pm on polling day.
