Elections are coming - organise your postal vote soon!
By Peter Dobbs
We are at present told to expect the County Council Elections (as well as the Police and Crime Commissioner election postponed from last year) to take place on May 6th
Clearly attending a polling station to vote in person might be something that more people wish to avoid, even if there is hopefully a lower incidence of Covid cases by then.
Anyone who is eligible to vote can apply for a postal vote and the procedure is quite simple. You might decide that voting in this way suits you for all elections and there is an option to become a permanent postal voter.
