Postal votes at the ready...

Suffolk PCC ballot paper 2016

If you are in Suffolk Coastal, and have registered for a postal vote, you should by now have received your ballot paper and other documents relating to the Police & Crime Commissioner election on Thursday 5th May. Don't forget to return the ballot paper to the Returning Officer in good time.

Even if you think (as many do) that the role of Police & Crime Commissioner is unnecessary, bear in mind that the appointment is going to be made. The PCC controls a very large budget, and is accountable for decisions that have major and longlasting effects on policing in Suffolk Coastal, so it is important to choose the best candidate available. Use your vote, and use it wisely!

Postal votes received before polling day will be counted in scheduled sessions starting on Monday 25th April, with the last counting session on the evening of polling day at Suffolk Police HQ in Martlesham Heath. All postal votes received before the close of the poll at 10 p.m. will be counted.
