Last chance to register to vote

PEOPLE who want to vote by proxy in the upcoming local elections have until Wednesday, April 25 to make sure they are registered.

Elections for Daventry District Council (DDC) will take place on Thursday, May 3, for all 36 seats in the council’s wards.

A number of parish elections will also take place on the same day.

Voting by proxy means that people appoint someone to vote on their behalf if they are unable to get to a polling station.
