When is the next election?
The decision to call a general election is made by the Prime Minister by asking the Queen to dissolve Parliament. They are usually held every 4-5 years.
Local Council elections are held every 4 years. Milton Keynes Council has adopted a system to elect the Council in thirds, which means that in every 4 year period, there will be 3 elections. The next election is likely to be in May 2014, however, none has officially been called yet.
How do I vote?
Provided that you have registered to vote and are on the Electoral Roll, you will receive a ballot paper for any due election or referendum. You can vote by one of three ways: in person at your LOCAL polling station (which will be indicated on your ballot paper), by post (you will need to register separately for this), or by proxy (someone else voting on your behalf).
Who are our candidates?
The candidates are not officially declared until nomination papers have been received by the Returning Officer at Milton Keynes Council (following the calling of an election).
Who is my Member of Parliament?
Iain Stewart MP represents the Milton Keynes South constituency which includes the Walton Park Ward. He was elected at the 2010 UK Parliament (general) election.
Does Milton Keynes Council report to Parliament?
Not in the way most people think. Governement is not like a private enterprise, however if you do have an issue that you feel you cannot resolve through Milton Keynes Council then you can always contact your MP for advice or if you feel your complaint is serious enough the Local Government Ombudsman.
Does Milton Keynes Council have any control over the Parish/Community Council Tax rate?
No. Your local Parish/Community Council is responsible for setting their own precept and Milton Keynes Council is responsible for collecting it.
How can I support my the Local UKIP Party?
Voting UKIP at any election is the best way to demonstrate your support for our cause and the policies that we would like to manifest. We have a growing team of supporters who help us to spread the message. We are always keen to welcome new people to our team, either by way of delivering a few leaflets or attending social events to raise money.
