- There are 112,000 eligible voters
- 86 polling stations will be open
- 257 polling station staff will be on duty
Our Electoral Registration Officer said:
“Putting a cross in a box might seem simple, but there are plenty of things voters need to consider in order to be ready for May’s local election.
“Your poll card will tell you the location of your polling station. Voters can also get in touch with the team here at the Council with any further queries.
“If you're registered, you do not need your poll card to vote. However, we would encourage you to bring it with you to make the process quicker and more efficient.”
Phillippa Saray, Electoral Commission Regional Manager for the East and Southeast of England, said:
“Polling stations will be open from 7am to 10pm on Thursday 2 May. Voters who have opted to vote by post must return their postal ballot pack by 10pm and can hand it in at their polling station if they don’t have time to return it by post.”
