Kidsgrove residents have their chance in the first ever Kidsgrove opinion poll, that we know of. Kidsgrove residents are being asked to anonymously express how they intend to vote in the up and coming Kidsgrove By Election.
It is being anticipated that Labour should and will win this seat locally on the back of the national politics at the moment, however the fact that this seat is the one of the disgraced former Labour Councillor Kyle-Noel Taylor could make some voters think twice about voting for the party who endorsed his application as a councillor when he stood for election to Newcastle Borough Council.
The Lib Dems, Conservatives and TUAC are also fielding candidates in this Kidsgrove By Election. This election is becoming more important as a win for any party other than Labour would ensure that Labour would need every single member to attend Newcastle Borough Council to pass motions. Some residents believe this could be good for local politics as it ensures that no party can take local residents of Newcastle for granted.
Please ensure that you cast your voting intention if you live in the Kidsgrove Ward.
