Dear Wyre Borough Council,
I note from your website that you have provided the Electorate Number, Ballot Papers Issued and Turnout for most wards, however not all this information is complete for all wards.
Please could you provide a full list of the Electorate Number, Ballot Papers Issued and Turnout for each ward. Please could you also provide the number of Spoilt ballots and refusals to vote.
Thank you for your email.
Wyre Council acknowledges receipt of your request. Your request will be handled by an officer who will respond under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 or Environmental Information Regulations 2004 as appropriate.
Whilst it is the Council's policy to provide information wherever possible, I need to advise you that there are a number of exemptions under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 or Environmental Information Regulations 2004 which may prevent the release of some or all of the information you have requested. Some exemptions are absolute and some only apply where the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs that in disclosing the information. You will be informed if this is the case and the reason why.
There may be a fee payable for this information. This will be considered and you will be informed if a fee is payable. In this event the fee must be paid before the information is processed and released. The 20 working day time limit for responses is suspended until receipt of the payment.
