Elections may be called in two South Holland villages after the resignation of two parish councillors.
Coun Vicky Hills has resigned from Sutton Bridge Parish Council and Sarah Wilkinson has stepped down from Gedney Parish Council.
The process now will see a notice of vacancy displayed throughout each parish for 14 days, no later than June 1.
Should ten electors from either parish request that an election be held by June 19 then there would be one in each parish no later than August 21.
Should the required numbers not request an election then the two councils will fill their vacancies by co-option.
