A by-election to fill a vacancy within the Dane Valley ward of Thanet District Council will be held on Thursday 3 December.

It comes after the resignation of Cllr. Stephen Broadhurst, who had been a member of Thanet District Council since May 2007.

Those residents that have recently completed their voter registration form will be able to vote at this election. Those residents who have yet to complete their voter registration form have until Wednesday 18 November to return their forms to enable them to vote at these elections.

Electoral Services will shortly be commencing its third and final stage of its annual canvass, with canvassers carrying out door-to-door enquiries to properties where no response has been received.

To check that your name has been included on the Register of Electors, please contact Thanet District Council's Electoral Services team on 577500.

As an alternative to casting their votes at the polling station, electors can choose either a postal or proxy vote for this election.

Completed application forms must be received by the Electoral Registration Officer by the following deadlines:
