Make sure you are registered to vote in this year’s borough and parish/town council elections
The town council elections – the first since the conclusion of the Local Government Boundary Commission review in 2015 – will reflect the new parish ward boundaries introduced following that review.
The elections take place on Thursday 2 May and are your opportunity to make your voice heard and elect your local councillors to represent you and your community.
The deadline for voting registration is Friday 12 April
If you are not registered by Friday 12 April, you cannot vote in these elections.
During late March through to early April, you will receive your polling card or postal vote card which confirms you are registered to vote. This will include details of where your polling station is or, if appropriate, when you will receive your postal vote.
Don’t forget you can register online
If you do not receive a polling card or postal vote card by Saturday 6 April, you can easily register online by visiting the Government’s Register to Vote online service. You will be asked to submit your date of birth and National Insurance number.
The deadline for voting by post is Monday 15 April
If you wish to vote by post, please request an application form by calling 0151 443 2222 or email email@example.com. You must first be registered to vote in order to opt to vote by post.
The deadline for receipt of completed postal vote application forms is 5pm on Monday 15 April.
