Local Government Elections 5 May 2022

Local Government Elections are coming up on Thursday 5 May 2022. If you are already registered to vote at your current address you don’t need to register again. Anyone who needs to register can do so quickly and easily online by visiting www.gov.uk/register-to-vote. Registering takes less time than it takes to make a cup of tea!

Everyone who is registered by 14 April will be sent a poll card to inform them of their polling station location, hours of the poll or whether they have a postal vote. Most polling stations have not moved but please check your poll card to make sure. New applications for postal votes, or cancellation of current postal voting arrangements, must be received by Electoral Services by 5pm on 19 April.

Further information about registering to vote and the ways you can cast your vote is available on the Council website.
