VOTERS in the Sutton and Downham Village area will be voting twice - to elect district and county councillors.

Residents should have received two polling cards in the post, one marked with either Downham Village or Sutton ward and the other marked: division - Sutton.

They will vote in the East Cambridgeshire District Council election where all seats are being fought, and in a Cambridgeshire County Council by-election called after Sutton councillor Philip Bailey stepped down after a change in his work commitments took him away from the county.

John Hill, chief executive at East Cambridgeshire District Council, said: "We would urge all residents to vote in the forthcoming elections as, every day, vital decisions affecting your life are taken by local councillors who are chosen by you.

"If you vote, you will help choose who the people are that decide the way things are run in the district and county. Your vote is as important as anyone else's."
