Elections to select district councillors to represent the communities of East Lindsey will be held on Thursday, May 4.

There were six district wards where there will be no election to select the district councillor as there were insufficient nominations made to contest the number of seats within the ward.

These were: Coningsby & Mareham, Fulstow, Halton Holegate, Horncastle, Roughton, and Sibsey & Stickney.

Polling stations will be open from 7am to 10pm, or if you are unable to attend your designated polling station, you can choose to vote by post or proxy.

New postal vote applications need to be submitted by 5pm on Tuesday 18 April, and new proxy vote applications need to be received by 5pm on Tuesday 25 April

If you are a first-time voter or have moved house since the last election, you will need to register to vote online by midnight on Monday, 17 April 2023 here.

For the first time this year, voters will need to bring photographic ID with them to the polling station.

Rob Barlow, Returning Officer for East Lindsey District Council, said: “It is really important you take the time to decide who you want as your local councillor and to vote on Thursday 4 May. Make your vote count and have a say on who gets to represent you for the next four years.”
