RESIDENTS in Potters Bar who are set to vote by post in next week's by-election are being urged to return their ballot paper as soon as possible.
The call has been made by Hertsmere Borough Council in light of the threat of upcoming postal strikes within Royal Mail.
The by-election is being held in the town's Oakmere ward on October 22, to elect a successor to borough councillor Martin Heywood, who passed away on September 5.
By-elections are also taking place in the Borehamwood North electoral division for the county council and the Hillside ward of Elstree and Borehamwood Town Council.
