Due to the coronavirus pandemic you may wish to consider your voting options.
Polling stations will be open and will have undergone extensive preparations as well as ongoing monitoring to ensure that they are safe environments to cast your vote.
However, it is likely that more people than ever will wish to take up an option for a postal vote for the elections on 6th May.
Given the anticipated demand, please apply for a postal vote as early as possible to allow the Council’s elections team plenty of time to be able to process your application.
