Returning Officer Will Bramble said: “We were all deeply saddened to hear of Councillor Reg Owen’s passing.  He was an incredible example of an outstanding public servant and we will miss him.  His passing has resulted in the vacancy for St Ishmaels. I would encourage St Ishmaels ward residents to vote, and to register to vote, even if they are not yet sure they want to vote.”

Residents should note that this by-election takes place on a Tuesday, not a Thursday as is typical for most other elections.

Poll cards will be sent to electors before the election that will indicate which polling station to vote at.
