 While the rest of the country yawns at the David Davis by-election in Yorkshire -  Cookham is rife with election fever!!
A by election, caused by the resignation of Cllr John Hewitt, has brought a rush of candidates (almost) to fight for the vacancy...
The Tories and Labour were unable to find a candidate - so the Lib Dems are challenged by two independents. 
Democracy is expensive. Polling stations have to be booked and manned,  voting slips printed - and polling cards sent to everyone on the electoral register.
A good turnout will be considered to be anything over 15% of the electorate.   So make sure you cast your vote - and lets hope the winner will turn up to attend their Parish Council duties!
