    Covid-19 Information

    We are currently making provisions to ensure that voting at polling stations will be as safe as possible during the current Covid-19 situation. We are working hard with Central Government, the Electoral Commission and the wider electoral community and public health authorities to help ensure you stay safe when casting your vote next May.

    Should you have any concerns about voting in person you can set up a postal vote to receive your ballot papers via the postal service, instead of attending a polling station.
