A by-election for Hinksey Park ward in Oxford will take place on Thursday 29 September.

The by-election has been triggered by the resignation of Councillor Marie Tidball.

Residents of Hinksey Park can register to vote in the by-election by visiting the Government's website

Those wishing to stand in the by-election have until 4pm on 2 September to put their name forwards. The list of candidates will then be released by 5 September.

Following the sad death of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth ll, there have been some changes to timetable. The day of the Queen’s funeral, 19 September, will be a national day of mourning and the deadlines for registering for the by-election and applying for a postal vote will move back one day.

This means that the last day to register in time for the election, currently midnight on Tuesday 13 September, will now move to be midnight on Monday 12 September. 

The last day to apply for a postal vote, currently 5pm on Wednesday 14 September, will now move to 5pm on Tuesday 13 September.

There are no other changes and the voting day will remain Thursday 29 September.
