European and local Elections
Tuesday, 22 April 2014
Local election Day is 22 May this year, to coincide with the European elections. The deadline for applications to register to vote at these elections is Tuesday 6 May 2014. (Voter Registration form)
We will have the opportunity to vote for one of three councillors who represent our 'Calder Ward' on Calderdale Council. Nominations for this seat close on Thursday, 24 April at 4pm. Details of candidates will be made available on the HebWeb as soon as they are known.
The HebWeb will invite the candidates to post messages here on why we should vote for them.
For the European elections, Calderdale falls within the Yorkshire and the Humber Region. Elections are held every 5 years and the Region elects 6 members to the European Parliament. These elections are different in that they are not decided by who gets the most votes. Instead there is a quota system which means that minority parties can do better.
As outlined in our previous news item, there may also be elections for up to three Town councillors, if the seats are contested.
