Polling in the County Council Election got off to a sunny start from 7 am today at Cocking Village Hall. Two very pleasant officials were on hand, but as usual they were far from overwhelmed by the number of voters calling on them. At 9 am your Editor and wife were one of only two couples casting their votes.
Nevertheless the democratic process was under way and the poll closes at 10pm giving plenty of time for a good turnout.

The last Cocking Parish Council By-Election attracted a record turnout of 49% of our electorate, but this week's Police & Crime Commissioner Election was not as well supported.
Across Sussex, the turnout was only about 15%. Nevertheless we now have a new Commissioner in Katy Bourne, Conservative Party candidate, District Councillor and business woman. Katy beat her nearest rival, Labour's Godfrey Daniel in the 'second round' by 80,028 to 55,602 votes including voters' second preferences. The three other candidates were eliminated in the first round of voting.
