Last Chance to Vote on a Dorset Flag

From DCC's website:

"Don't miss your chance to vote for your preferred design for a flag to represent the county and its people.

Four possible designs, shortlisted from 29 ideas sent in by local people, are in the running and voting closes on Friday 12 September so there's still time to make your choice.

Posters featuring the four designs are on show at the county's libraries and are also posted on the Flag Institute (opens in a new window)website.

You can also pick up a voting slip at your local Dorset library, download one from the Flag Institute's website or just send your choice and contact details on a postcard to Flag Institute.

Alternatively you can e-mail your choice of A, B, C or D to, including your name, address and phone number.

Graham Bartram, Chief Vexillologist (flag expert) from the Flag Institute, has been involved in the shortlisting and organisation of the competition. He said: "Votes have been coming in thick and fast, both hard copies and emails. It's exciting to see that so many people support the idea of a Dorset flag.

"It's important that as many people as possible send in their vote so that the flag which eventually represents Dorset is truly chosen by the people of the county."

Residents of the whole county of Dorset, including Bournemouth and Poole, are eligible to vote. You must provide your address so that the judges can verify you live in the county.

Votes will be counted on Tuesday 16 September with an announcement of the winner as soon as possible after numbers have been verified."
