Don't forget to vote in the local elections on Thursday 2 May

News release from 01/05/2019

ELECTIONS take place in Cambridge tomorrow, Thursday 2 May, for 16 of the 42 seats on Cambridge City Council and for the Trumpington division of Cambridgeshire County Council.

Polling stations will be open across the city from 7am-10pm on polling day. Residents’ poll cards indicate which polling station they should use and details can also be found on the Where Do I Vote website:

All polling stations are accessible to people with a mobility or visual disability and staff will be on hand at each polling station to provide any assistance that people voting may need.

Everyone who registered and is eligible to vote will now have received a poll card – although people do not need their poll card to vote, they simply need to give their name and address to the polling clerk.

The counts for the elections will take place at The Guildhall on Thursday 2 May after the polls have closed. Results are expected by the early hours of Friday 3 May and will be published on the council’s website. People can also keep up to date with events on the council’s Twitter feed

Antoinette Jackson, Chief Executive of Cambridge City Council and Returning Officer for the elections, said: “It’s very straightforward to vote, and I would urge everyone across Cambridge to take part in this year’s elections for Cambridge City Council, and in Trumpington division for the county council. This is an opportunity to ensure you have a say in important decisions which could affect you and your part of the city.

“If residents need any advice or assistance when they get to the polling station on Thursday, there will be members of staff on hand throughout the day to provide help.”
