Thetford Town Council By-Elections, 6th May 2021

By elections will be held to fill two vacancies on Thetford Town Council. One position in Boudica Ward was unfilled at the previous 2019 town council elections. A vacancy in Castle Ward arose due to the resignation of the sitting councillor. The successful candidates will be elected for the remainder of the four-year term that began in May 2019. Details of the candidates can be found below. Each resident of the wards concerned will get one vote for their preferred candidate, and the candidate with the greatest number of votes in each ward will be elected.

Voting will take place in polling stations between 7am and 10pm on Thursday 6th May. Find your polling station on Where Do I Vote.
