Ballot period remains open: Voters post now
Votes for our renewal ballot have until October 6th to be received by the election’s office. With recent postal strikes and potential backlog, additional bank holiday and the potential for further strike action delaying postage closer to the deadline may result in your vote being late and not counted. Post now to ensure your vote is received.
If you have not received your ballot paper in the post, please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org for support OR the elections team as per the notice letter.
A huge thanks to everyone that has voted so far, without your support by voting all activity will stop from October with the immediate impact being the cancellation of all events/markets planned for the Town Centre for Christmas and going forward. Hamilton Our Town digital channels and marketing would end, planters removed, BID manager made redundant and unavailable for the town, and future projects relating to business and the community cancelled (including our safety initiatives such as Taxi Marshalls). It is self-evident that the impact to the area and the community with the dedicated service removed would be a huge negative as no replacement organisation will take Hamilton Our Town’s place.
We need everyone’s help to make sure this does not happen. Therefore, if you have your ballot paper please vote yes and return it now. If/once the term is confirmed we will shortly afterwards announce plans and dates for the festive season events including the Light Switch on and on the following week, town centre parade and later festive markets.
