Parliamentary Election

Elections will be held for South Northamptonshire Constituency on Thursday 8 June 2017

Within South Northamptonshire there are two Parliamentary Constituencies – Daventry and South Northamptonshire.

We organise the election for the South Northamptonshire Parliamentary Constituency and Daventry District Council organises the election for the Daventry Constituency.

If you live in the following villages you come under the Daventry Constituency:

The Constituency breakdown in more detail can bee seen at:

If you are not yet registered to vote, or you have moved/due to move, you have until midnight on Monday 22 May to register to be able to vote in this election.

If you are already registered to vote, but will be away on polling day, you can apply for a postal vote. Completed applications must be received by us no later than 5:00pm on Tuesday 23 May. Postal vote applications that were received and processed by 26 April will be sent out around 25 May. Postal applications received and processed between 27 April and 23 May will be sent out around 30 May.

If you already have a postal vote, but you will be away when they are sent out, you can change the address your vote is sent to, or you can cancel it altogether. To change or cancel your postal vote you must let us know in writing (letter or email) by 5pm on 23 May; each person who wants to cancel or change a postal vote must contact us individually.

All postal votes are sent out via 1st class post; however we cannot guarantee how quickly they will reach their destination. If you are considering changing the address that your postal vote is sent to, for example to your holiday address, please consider the length of time it will take for the postal vote to get to you, and then back to us when it has been completed.

If you wish to change from a postal vote to a proxy vote, you must do this by 5pm on 23 May; this is a deadline set by legislation, and after this time we are not allowed to make any changes to postal voter details.

If you are going to be away on polling day and don’t want a postal vote, you can appoint a proxy (someone votes on your behalf) to vote in your usual polling station. Completed proxy applications must be received by us no later than 5:00pm on Wednesday 31 May. We will write to your proxy after this deadline to confirm they have been appointed.

As the election was called at short notice we are working to the legal minimum timetable of 6 weeks, which has meant that information has had to be sent to our printers as soon as possible.
