Brecon and Radnorshire recall petition under way

The recall petition for convicted MP Chris Davies opens on 9 May. Voters in Brecon and Radnorshire will have six weeks to sign the petition in six locations across the constituency. People registered for postal votes will receive a signing sheet to return if they want to sign the petition.

If 5,303 eligible voters (that is, 10% of the electorate) sign it, a by-election will be held.

The designated petition signing places are located at:

  • County Hall, Llandrindod Wells, LD1 5LG
  • Neuadd Brycheiniog, Cambrian Way, Brecon, LD3 7HR
  • Presteigne Library, Market Hall, Presteigne, LD8 2AD
  • Ystradgynlais Library, Temperance Street, Ystradgynlais, SA9 1JJ
  • Council Chamber, Broad Street, Hay-on-Wye, HR3 5BX
  • Clarence Hall House, Beaufort Street, Crickhowell, NP8 1BN

These locations will be open for signing:
Monday, 9am to 5pm (except spring bank holiday Monday)
Tuesday, 8am to 5pm
Wednesday, 9am to 8pm
Thursday, 9am to 5pm
Friday, 9am to 5pm

"A person is eligible to sign the petition if they are a registered parliamentary elector for the constituency and aged 18 or over (or the date of their 18th birthday is before the end of the signing period)," the official notice confirms.

Thanks to the Powys County Times for the detail.
