Two By-elections Announced

Published on Wednesday, 19th January 2022

Maldon District Council will shortly be conducting two by-elections.

This is following the resignations of former Councillor for the Wickham Bishops and Woodham District Ward, Karl Jarvis and former Town Councillor Peter Stilts who represented the Maldon West Ward of the Parish.

We will be starting the process to fill the vacancies, following requests from electors that the seats should be filled by way of an election, rather than by co-option.

Notices of election will be published on Thursday, 20 January 2022, seeking nominations for both seats.  If contested, polls will take place on 24 February 2022.

Nomination forms can be obtained by going to or from the Electoral Commission

Appointments should be requested and agreed in advance to enable the informal scrutiny of nominations, prior to their formal submission.

Paul Dodson
Returning Officer, Maldon District Council
