This Thursday 4 May, Hertfordshire residents can visit their local polling station to vote in the county council elections. Voters will decide the make-up of Hertfordshire County Council with all 78 seats up for election.
To make sure you feel ready to vote, we’ve put together some top polling station tips:
- Check your polling station. You must go to the polling station identified on your polling card. If you’ve lost your polling card or are unsure, check the location with your district or borough council’s elections team.
- You don’t need to bring your polling card with you to vote. You just need to tell the poll clerk your name and address when you arrive at the polling station.
- Voting opens at 7am and closes at 10pm. Work 9-5? Not a problem. As long as you’re in the queue at 10pm, you can still vote.
- You don’t need to bring a pen with you. Pencils are available in the polling booths.
- No photos in the booth. You can take photos outside the polling station, but not inside.
- Find your candidates. A full list of candidates is available within the notices section at www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/elections.
If you’re a registered voter, don’t miss out on the opportunity to have your say.
