LOCAL ELECTIONS: Who’s standing in your area?

ELECTION day has arrived in Comet country with the fates of 34 councillors in the elecorates’ hands and the divisive Alternative Vote (AV) referendum also being put to the public today (Thursday).

As well as local elections, voting reform is on the cards with the first national referendum since 1975 set to decide the fate of the first past the post system.

The Comet has collated a list of the candidates in the area, including those at Stevenage Borough Council, North Herts District Council and Central Bedfordshire Council. These can be found in our election section on our website homepage.

Keep checking our website tomorrow (Friday) too, as we’ll be bringing the latest on the candidates as the winners are announced.
