Newent and Taynton Ward poll rescheduled

Due to the sad death of Mr David Humphreys, the poll for the Forest of Dean District Council Ward of Newent and Taynton on 2 May 2019 has been postponed.

A new notice of election will be published on 15 May and there will be a period for nominations between 15 and 23 May. All existing candidates will remain nominated.

The poll will now take place on 20 June 2019.

Town council elections will continue as scheduled. Any postal votes should still be returned as per the instructions.

New postal votes and polling cards for the rescheduled poll will be issued in due course.

Claire Hughes, Returning Officer for Forest of Dean District Council, said: “Our thoughts are with Mr Humphrey’s family at this difficult time. If anybody is unclear about how we are proceeding, please call the elections office on 01594 812628 for guidance.”
