    "Of the ten Conservative Party candidates to stand in the Highworth Parish Council election, every single one was somehow awarded more than 3,000 votes despite only 2,477 people actually turning out to vote in the election."

    “The community of Highworth is challenging the result of the Town Council election of 2nd May 2019, by legal petition to the High Court.

    “At this election more votes were recorded than were cast, and at least one candidate not elected who should have been.

    “Following a meeting on Saturday 11th May at the Community Centre, it was agreed to set up this group to publicise the coordinated action being taken by the community, to forward this legal challenge.”
