With the local elections now just days away, Erewash Borough Council has issued an information checklist for voters in the borough.

The local elections on 6 May are to elect Derbyshire county councillors and a Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner. In Little Eaton, electors will also vote on their village’s Neighbourhood Plan while in the parish wards of Borrowash East and Borrowash West voters will be given ballot papers for Parish Council elections.

Following the resignations of two Erewash borough councillors, by-elections are being held in Ilkeston’s Hallam Fields and Long Eaton’s Nottingham Road wards where voters will also be given ballot papers to elect new representatives. More information can be found on the elections pages.
