Tour De Yorkshire Interfering With ERYC Election

As the Tour De Yorkshire goes through much of the East Riding, including Pocklington Provincial, on 2 May 2019 it will interfere with the ERYC Elections as the routes to the Polling Stations will be closed to facilitate the race.

As this could be in breach of Electoral Law I have requested Caroline Lacey, ERYC Returning Officer, to seek confirmation from the Electoral Commission that no legislation will be breached due to electors having access to the Poll Stations denied for part of the day.

Why did ERYC Leader Conservative Councillor Stephen Parnaby not raise this with Tour De Yorkshire?

Historically the Conservative Party have benefited the most from postal votes which will be unaffected by the race.
