Midhurst by-election date set

A date has been set for a West Sussex by-election.

Voters in the Midhurst electoral division will go to the polls on Thursday November 15, to elect a new county councillor.

The by-election has been caused by the resignation of the Conservative councillor Nola Hendon, who joined the County Council in 2005.

Nominations for the vacancy will close at noon on Friday October 19, and a list of candidates will be published on Tuesday October 23, 2012.
