UK General Election 2019
A UK Parliamentary General Election will be held on Thursday 12 December 2019.
About the election
At a UK General Election you will be voting to elect a Member of Parliament. There are 650 Members of Parliament (MPs) in the UK Parliament.
Poll cards will be issued from 11 November.
If you do NOT receive a poll card by 20 November it may mean you are not registered.
You can register online to vote at this election. If you're already registered to vote you don't need to register again.
Postal ballot packs to existing postal voters will be posted around 22 November. These need to be completed and returned by polling day.
Anyone who applies for a postal vote after 8 November should receive their postal ballot pack around 29 November.
The count will take place after close of poll on 12 December at the Lord Butler Leisure Centre Saffron Walden and the result will be published here.
These are the candidates standing in the Saffron Walden Constituency. Full details can be found in the Statement as to Persons Nominated and Notice of Poll.
