Voters in the Fairfield ward will be electing a new councillor on Thursday 7 November 2019.
Croydon Council has today (Thursday 3 October) published a Notice of Election for the vacancy. This follows the resignation of Councillor Niroshan Sirisena earlier this month. Voting to find his successor will take place at five polling stations in the ward during the usual polling hours of 7am to 10pm on 7 November. Electors should receive their poll card by 16 October.
Residents living in the Fairfield ward who are British, eligible Commonwealth, Irish or European Union citizens, and aged 18 or over on 7 November, will be able to vote at this election, but only if they are registered to vote. The council is urging anyone in the Fairfield ward not on the electoral register to sign up here.
The deadline for applying to vote by post in this election is 5pm on Wednesday 23 October. All postal votes should be dispatched to electors who have arranged to vote by post by Friday 25 October.
