Voting papers for the election of a new Hastings mayor and one new Hastings District councillor are going out this week and should be in letterboxes by this weekend or early next week.
The by-election was triggered by the resignations of Mayor Lawrence Yule and Councillor Adrienne Pierce earlier this year.
People who have not received their voting papers by November 9 should phone the Hastings Electoral Officer on 871 5000 to discuss making a special vote or come into the polling booth at Hastings District Council, which is open from 8am to 5pm on weekdays, from November 2 until noon on November 24, when voting closes.
All residents in the district can vote for the mayor while only those in the Hastings-Havelock North ward can vote for both the mayor and the councillor. It is a postal vote so residents need to place a tick by the name of their preferred candidate, put the completed ballot paper in the Freepost envelope provided, and then either put them into a post box no later than November 21, or drop them by hand into the ballot box at Hastings District Council, in Lyndon Rd, Hastings, by noon on November 24.
