Kentish Town by-election called for 28 October

From Camden Council website:
Following the death of Councillor Dave Horan, an election is to be held for ONE Councillor for the Kentish Town Ward.

Nomination papers may be obtained, during normal office hours, from Electoral Services, Room 11, Camden Town Hall, Judd Street, London, WC1H 9LZ. They must be returned to the Elections Office by 12 noon on Friday 1 October 2010.

If the election is contested, the poll will take place on Thursday 28 October 2010 between the hours of 7.00am and 10.00pm.

Camden residents can apply for a postal vote: you can download the form here.

Councillor Horan, who died last Saturday, had regained the seat for Labour in May after losing it to the Liberal Democrats in 2006.

The Liberal Democrats haven't selected a candidate yet, but they have an excellent set of campaigners to choose from, including former councillors for Kentish Town.
