Only if you live in the North Yorkshire constituency of Thirsk and Malton where voters will have to wait until May 27th before they get a chance to elect a new MP.
The UK Independence Party (UKIP) confirmed that their candidate John Boakes had died. Janet Waggott, acting returning officer for Ryedale District Council, said that meant the election in Thirsk and Malton must be stopped and re-run. Only UKIP will be allowed a new candidate.
The last time an election was stopped was following the death of Liberal Democrat candidate Jo Harrison in Staffordshire South, in the 2005 general election
On looking at the relevant section in the Electoral law hand-book - I found that if one particular candidate died, the election would have been cancelled for everyone.
Not Gordon Brown!
Step forward (and mind the gap, don't trip) John Bercow.
Should anything unfortunate befall Mr Bercow between now and May 6th - the entire election has to be cancelled.
3.90 If the (Acting) Returning Officer receives satisfactory proof before the result is
announced that a candidate who was the Speaker of the House of Commons
seeking re-election has died, then the election must be stopped immediately. If the
poll is under way or the count is being undertaken, that process stops. The election
I do hope he is wrapped up in cotton wool, I couldn't bear the thought of anything happening to him - at least not between now and May 6th.
