Stratford-on-Avon and Warwick District Councils are considering a proposal to merge, creating a new District Council covering the whole of South Warwickshire (the areas currently covered by Stratford-on-Avon and Warwick District Councils).
The public consultation on the plans to create a South Warwickshire Council starts this week on Monday 6 September and runs until Sunday 24 October.
The consultation document and online questionnaire can be viewed and completed at: www.southwarwickshire.org.uk
You can apply to work on election day. A number of positions are available including presiding officers, poll clerks and counting staff. No experience is necessary for some positions but to apply for a presiding officer position you need at least two years' experience as a poll clerk. The fees paid for these positions varies depending upon the type of election. If you are interested in applying to work for us on this year's election, please email email@example.com
Election results are published after each count. They can be found on our dedicated Election Results page.
