Some people have told us they are confused by tales of local government elections. There is no council election here.
We can elect our Police Commissioner (who speaks to the police on our behalf) on May 5th; and we get the chance to say if we want to leave, or remain in the European Union, on June 23rd.
Listening to reasons for and against being in the EU can be confusing, but reading page 4 of this issue might help.
Candidates for police commissioner have been nominated by political parties, which can be helpful if you think that one party expresses your ideas. Otherwise we will probably have received leaflets through the post.
