13th March 2020
As you have probably seen, the Government has announced that all polls scheduled for 7 May 2020 will be postponed for 12 months.
Solace’s elections spokesperson Louise Round, assisted by her deputy policy leads, is working with the Electoral Commission and the Association of Electoral Administrators on a detailed list of questions to the Cabinet Office relating to this decision. This includes issues such as the position of polls scheduled before 7 May and over the coming 12 months, as well as issues relating to newly forming Councils, the electoral cycle, abortive costs, new warding arrangements, referendums, and other matters.
We have no more information to provide at this time but want to assure you we are working hard to get answers to the questions we know many of you have as soon as we possibly can.
We will issue further information as soon as we have it.
Managing Director, Solace & Solace in Business
