Jason Boom'It may seem a long time away but if you want to be involved with the local election process in May 2011 now is the time to act' says Jason Boom, Clerk to Hebden Royd Town Council.

'It's especially important to make sure you are on the electoral roll if you intend to stand as a candidate in the parish elections as without this 'roll' number your application cannot be accepted.

'The system allows you to stand for election in a parish if you live there, have your primary place of work there or live within 3 miles of the boundary' added Jason 'but you must be on the 'roll' somewhere to qualify'.
