Norfolk County Council elections are coming on 2 May 2013, and North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) is urging all residents to make sure they are entitled to vote.

Every four years 84 councillors are elected from across the whole county of Norfolk to make decisions about county-wide services. North Norfolk has 11 councillors, representing the county electoral divisions of Cromer, Fakenham, Holt, Hoveton and Stalham, Melton Constable, Mundesley, North Walsham East, North Walsham West and Erpingham, Sheringham, South Smallburgh and Wells.


Local elections are an important part of the democratic process, which is why NNDC wants to remind everyone to think about their vote ahead of the election. People who are not yet registered to vote or who have recently moved need to send in their application to be added to the register at their current address as soon as possible. To be eligible to vote at these elections the last date for receiving applications is Wednesday 17 April. The deadline for applying for a postal vote or amending or cancelling an existing one is 5pm on 17 April. Proxy applications can be accepted up to 5pm on Wednesday 24 April.


Nominations for candidates for the North Norfolk area must be received by the Deputy Returning Officer at Electoral Services, North Norfolk District Council, Holt Road, Cromer, NR27 9EN between Tuesday 26 March and 12 Noon on Friday 5 April. The county councillors will be elected by the first past the post system.
