Derbyshire County Council Notice of Casual Vacancy in the Office of County Councillor, Long Eaton Division

Notice is hereby given, pursuant to section 87(2) of the Local Government Act 1972, that a casual vacancy exists in the office of County Councillor for the Long Eaton Division of Derbyshire County Council due to the death of Councillor Alan Griffiths.
A casual vacancy is filled by means of a by-election to elect a new member to fill the vacant seat on the council.

Requesting a By-Election

A by-election is only triggered by local government electors requesting a by-election to take place. This request can be made by two local government electors within the Derbyshire Area (not just from the division) giving notice in writing to the proper officer (see details below).

The Holding of a By-Election

Once the requests from the electors are received, the polling day for the by-election must be set at the Returning Officer's discretion within 35 days of the date of receipt of the requests. There is no time limit for receipt of the requests. If requests are not received, the seat will remain vacant until the next ordinary Elections in 2025. All requests for a by-election regarding this casual vacancy must be sent to the returning officer (email is acceptable) at the address below.
