Local Democracy Week 2017
Council officers and councillors will be getting out and about to meet local people this October during Local Democracy Week.
Residents will have the chance to check their electoral registration and find out more about voting in elections at the council’s roadshow which is on tour from Monday 9 to Friday 13 October 2017.
They’ll also be able to have a chat to local councillors to find out more about what it’s like to stand for election and to represent a ward.
The stand will be manned by members of the Democratic Services and Electoral Services team at the following venues:
|Festival Place||Monday 9 October 2017||8.30am to 6pm|
|Overton Library||Tuesday 10 October 2017||9.30am to 12.30pm|
|Whitchurch Town Hall||Tuesday 10 October 2017||2pm to 5pm|
|Chineham Library||Wednesday 11 October 2017||9.30am to 5.30pm|
|Tadley Library||Thursday 12 October 2017||9.30am to 5pm|
|South Ham Library||Friday 13 October 2017||9.30am to 12.30pm|
The national Local Democracy Week theme is ‘Citizen participation, consultation and commitment: for a thriving local democracy’ and the borough council aims to raise awareness about participation in the local democratic process.
Leaflets about the council’s work will also be available and members of the public will be invited to take part in a political true or false game to find out how much they know about voting.
