If this is true, it means that the Town Council may have inadvertently misled voters.

It also means that it will be almost impossible for voters to know what polling stations they should attend because the Town Council has chosen not to send out polling cards with their Electoral Registration numbers on.

    Having spoken to a lot of voters in Flexbury and Poughill over the last few weeks, this decision is probably a good thing. Most Poughill residents assumed they’d be voting at Poughill Village Hall as usual and some questioned why they’d have to go into Bude to vote – so they’ll be pleased with this outcome. And in Flexbury, most thought they’d be voting at the Parkhouse Centre, which is still the case, so again their assumption was correct.
