Note: please ask questions which are open to all candidates; don’t make them person- or ward-specific.


The online voting link will be emailed on 29 July, and will come from the company OpaVote. Those who have requested a postal ballot should receive them around the same time. Voting remains open until Wednesday 12 August.
