POLLING stations to vote for City of York councillors and parish councillors are open around the city from 7am today (Thursday, May 2).

Residents are reminded that voting for the local elections runs until 10pm, with the count due to take place tomorrow and local councillors and parish councillors announced on Friday afternoon.

Voters can visit their designated polling stations on election day during opening hours in person - this should be clear on your polling card. If you do not have a polling card, you can check you’re registered to vote at the correct address using the register of electors, find your designated polling station using the register of electors or by contacting Electoral Services, and still vote at your designated polling station by providing your name and address to the polling clerk.

EU citizens are eligible to vote in these elections, if they are registered to vote.

When you arrive at your designated polling station you’ll be given ballot paper listing the candidates you can vote for. You may be given more than one ballot paper if multiple elections are taking place in your local area on the same day.
