Elections

On the 5th May 2011 Parish Council and County Council elections are being held for the Parish of Bishop Burton and Beverley Rural Ward. You may vote in the Village Hall between the hours of 7.00 am and 10.00 pm. Alternatives to voting in person are given below.

The lists of nominations for the Parish of Bishop Burton and Beverley Rural Ward are in documents attached to this article. Both elections are contested. The Parish Council has 10 nominations for 9 seats.

On the same day a National Referendum is being held where the question to be put is: At present, the UK uses the “first past the post” system to elect MPs to the House of Commons. Should the “alternative vote” system be used instead?
