St George’s residents are set to return to the polls next month to fill a vacancy within the Corporation of St George.

A spokeswoman for the corporation confirmed that the election will fill the resident councillor position formerly held by Cyniqua Anderson, who resigned in May.

The spokeswoman added that two candidates have been nominated — Tianny Butterfield and Lynwood Trott.

According to a notice in the Official Gazette, an extraordinary election will be held in the town on July 7.

Advanced polling for incapacitated electors and those who will not be on the island will take place at St George's Town Hall between 8am and 8pm on June 30.

Municipal elections were scheduled to take place in both St George and Hamilton in May. However, the dates were pushed back until May 2023 because of the legal dispute between the Government and the Corporation of Hamilton.
