PR Date: 
Wednesday, 31 March 2021 - 11:30am

Polling stations will be open on 6 May and will have safety measures in place; so should you wish, you will be able to vote in person.

If voting in person, you are encouraged to keep yourself and others safe at the polling station by:

  • Wearing a face covering
  • Bringing your own pen or pencil
  • Cleaning your hands when entering and leaving the polling station
  • Keeping a safe distance

If you would prefer not to vote in person, you can vote by post, or by appointing someone you trust to vote on your behalf - a proxy vote.
