15 NOVEMBER 2012
All Conservative members living in Wiltshire and Swindon are invited to meet the candidates for the Wiltshire Police and Crime Commissioner Elections being held on 15 November.

We were all impressed with the style of meetings conducted for the MEP candidates when members sat down at tables, whilst each candidate had 10 minutes with each group and moved from table to table. Therefore, we will be holding similar meetings for you to meet the PCC candidates.

Given the geography of Wiltshire and Swindon there will be 3 meetings spread throughout the county.

You are welcome to attend whichever meeting suits you best, you can bring your ballot paper with you or post it back to the office. There will be an opportunity to listen to the candidates and ask questions. You will be asked to vote by ranking the candidates in order of your preferred choice.

The votes will be counted and the result declared at the Morrison Hall, 12 Brown Street, Salisbury SP1 1HE as soon as the count has concluded (estimated 5.30pm).

Mon 16th July ■ Corn Exchange, Market Place, Wiltshire, Devizes SN10 1BN Wed 18th July ■ Ellendune Centre, Barrett Way Wroughton Wiltshire SN4 9LW Fri 20th July ■ Red Lion Hotel, 4 Milford Street, Salisbury, Wiltshire SP1 2AN
All three venues have ample parking.
HOW TO REGISTER TO ATTEND AND VOTE NB : Wiltshire and Swindon have chosen a postal ballot of members and the closing date is 27 July 2012.
