Kent Estuary by-elections today
Polls are now open in today's two local government by-elections in the Milnthorpe and Arnside area (20th December 2018).
Polling stations are open from 7am to 10pm this evening. If you are on the electoral register for the relevant area you do not need your polling card to vote (though if you don't have it, taking some other evidence of ID might be a good idea.)
The elections were caused by the sad death of councillor Ian Stewart.
Councillor Tom Harvey and Rachel Ashburner, and the Conservative candidates in these elections, standing respectively to represent the Kent Estuary division of Cumbria County Council and the Arnside & Milnthorpe ward of South Lakes DC.
I believe that both these candidates (pictured below) would be good, effective and hard-working councillors.
