Make your mark this Thursday

3 May 2016
South Cambridgeshire voters are being reminded that polling stations will be open from 7am to 10pm this Thursday (5 May) for them to cast their vote in the Cambridgeshire Police and Crime Commissioner, District Council and Parish elections.
 
Voters are also advised:
  • you don’t need your polling card with you to be able to vote
  • if you haven’t returned your postal vote, completed and sealed voting packs can be dropped off at your polling station
  • you can only cast your vote at the polling station your home address is registered under – this is listed on your polling card or you can find it online by putting your home postcode into the Democracy Club polling station finder
  • if voters have a disability, polling station staff are able to offer a range of help from large print ballot papers to refer to, to helping voters mark their ballot paper.
 
Every registered voter can have their say in the Cambridgeshire Police and Crime Commissioner election. Nineteen South Cambridgeshire District Council seats are also up for election, and parish elections are taking place in Little Gransden, Newton and the Thriplow Village parish ward.
 
Jean Hunter, chief executive and elections returning officer at South Cambridgeshire District Council, said: “Don’t lose your voice, make sure you turn out to vote on Thursday. Staff at our 120 polling stations will be ready and willing to help, so if you need any advice on the voting process, or help to vote on the day, please do ask.”
