Have your say on May 2

  • GEOFF PARKER

Voters in Charnwood are being reminded to have their say in the local elections on Thursday, May 2.

Charnwood Borough Council has 52 councillors across 28 wards and all seats are up for election this year. There are also elections for some town and parish councils in Charnwood.

Geoff Parker, Returning Officer, said: “I would encourage people to use their vote and have a say in how local government services are operated in Charnwood.

“While you do not have to take your poll card to the polling station, it’s preferable if you do because it can help the staff there.”

Around 80 polling stations staffed by more than 200 people will be open between 7am and 10pm on May 2 so people can cast their votes. Your poll card will tell you which polling station you must vote at.

There are 132,935 people on the electoral register in Charnwood.

The deadline to register to vote in the local elections has now passed so if you are not on the register you will not be able to vote on May 2.

You can register to vote in future elections by visiting https://www.gov.uk/register-to-vote

Votes will be counted on May 3 and the results announced on the Council’s website, visit www.charnwood.gov.uk/localelections2019, and on social media, just follow @CharnwoodBC and the hashtag #CharnElections19
