The search is on for a new councillor at Aylesbury Town Council after Iain Bozier stood down from his post.
It is not yet known why Mr Bozier, who represented Elmhurst, has left the authority.
There will be a by-election for the seat if 10 voters from the ward write to the returning officer by November 21 requesting one.
If this does not happen the new councillor will be decided by the existing members at a meeting on December 12.
The returning officer is Andrew Grant and requests for an election should be sent to him at Electoral Services, The Gateway, Gatehouse Road, Aylesbury, Bucks, HP19 8FF.
