Flyposting

We would like to remind all candidates, agents and political parties of legislation surrounding flyposting and the erection of signs on the highway.

Herefordshire Council as a Highways Authority does not allow the display of election material on any highway maintainable at public expense on any street lighting columns, street signs, traffic signals, utility equipment or other items of street furniture. The display of signs upon any structure or tree on or in the highway, which also includes footways, grassed areas and central reservations is a criminal offence under the Highways Act 1980.

Please instruct your teams that political signage must not be installed within the highway extent. Any political signage placed on the highway will be removed, including signage placed in or on verges, fencing and signposts. If you wish to report any flyposting please log this online at reporting graffiti and flyposting.

Home Office private security offer for General Election candidates

Earlier this year the government provided funding in support of defending democracy and the election process. Part of this funding has been used to put in place private security provision for general election candidates.

Primary responsibility for security during the general election lies with policing. In the first instance, if you consider yourself to be at risk of harm, or you believe a crime has been committed, please contact your local police on 999 or 101. You can also contact your local Operation Bridger Single Point of Contact to relay concerns or issues. Police are able to fund additional patrolling in areas that might benefit from a policing focus.

Dependant on fulfilling criteria and scope, and supplementary to policing activity, the Home Office can also provide private security. This ranges from accredited door supervisors to additional private security provision, available dependant on risk. The Home Office can also provide Situational Awareness Training and Cyber Security Awareness Training beyond that provided by policing.

The Home Office will consider requests for security on a case by case basis, judging each request on its own merits. To request security, please email HomeOfficeprivatesecurity@homeoffice.gov.uk

Count

The verification and counting of votes will take place at Hereford Leisure Centre, Holmer Road, Hereford, HR4 9UD.

The verification of votes will begin at 10pm on Thursday 4 July 2024 followed by the count.

Information regarding the appointment of counting agents and guests will be included in official appointment forms following the close of nominations.
