Another update from the Whickham South byelection

Council Group Leader Noel Rippeth emailed me tonight to tell me the latest turnout figures of postal votes in the Whickham South byelection. 58% turnout so far. We have in the region of 2200 postal votes in a ward of 7000 voters. It looks like we will get close to the turnout of postal votes we had in May. To be sure of getting postal votes in on time, people should complete them and take them to their polling station on Thursday, polling day.

A good turnout in this byelection should be to our advantage though we will have to see if those without postal votes turnout in sufficient numbers. There are two days left so still time for things to go wrong - and right!

Our last letter has now been delivered. All we can do now is wait.
