Polls apart for election

    28/11/2019



    A range of venues across Stafford Borough will be turned into polling stations for the General Election in a fortnight's time.

    Local sports clubs, churches and village halls are convenient locations that will be used for people to cast their votes on Thursday 12 December.

    Around 160 polling stations will be open for more than 100,000 residents eligible to vote. The Borough Council runs the elections for the two constituencies of Stafford and Stone.

    The venues will be hosting booths to ensure residents have an easy-access polling station in their local community.

    For example Stafford Rangers FC and the Little Stoke Cricket Club in Stone will be polling stations – as will the Stone Tennis and Squash Club.

    People will be able to cast their votes in a caravan in High Offley and The Cheese Rooms in Ellenhall – while the stunning St Mary’s Church at Ingestre - widely reputed to be Sir Christopher Wren’s only church outside London - will also be used as a station.

    Acting Returning Officer, Tim Clegg, Chief Executive of the Borough Council, said: “We are very grateful for the assistance of local businesses, sports clubs and community groups who have kindly offered the use of their premises as polling stations.

    “Their assistance is really important and means voters across the borough won’t have far to travel to make their voice heard on Thursday 12 December.”

    The polls will open from 7am to 10pm. For more information on the elections please visit: www.staffordbc.gov.uk/elections.
