Poll cards are on the way to voters this week.

PEOPLE are being reminded to get ready to vote in the upcoming Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) elections.

North Devon and Torridge District Council will be sending out poll cards this week ahead of the election on November 15.

The Police and Crime Commissioner will be accountable for how crime is tackled in Devon and Cornwall.

Judith Dark, North Devon electoral services manager, said: “This is the first election for a Police and Crime Commissioner. Their role is to be the voice of local people and hold the police to account. Because of this it is important that local people help decide who is best for the job.”

Torridge counterpart Paula Hunter added: “Poll cards are about to be delivered to local residents. If you don’t receive one it could mean you are not registered to vote.

“The deadline for registering to vote is 5pm on October 31 so there is still time.”

Everyone over the age of 18 can vote in elections providing they are on the electoral register.

For more information about voting, telephone 01271 388277 or 01237 428702.
