Election timetable 2017

March 26, 2017 1:17 PM
By Mark Pack

Lincolnshire County CouncilThis timetable is based on the one published by the Electoral Commission, but as ever make sure you double-check any crucial dates before relying on them. Even if there are no errors in this post or in the Electoral Commission's timetable, a Returning Officer who has got their timetable calculations wrong can throw a spanner in the works. You want to field that spanner in good time.
