01 May Don’t Forget to Vote!
A number of elections, including the election of West Sussex County Councillors, are taking place next Thursday (6 May).
For those who are voting in person (or for those voting as someone’s proxy), polling stations will be open from 7am – 10pm and will be COVID-19 safe, but you may want to plan ahead for how to vote:
Check your poll card because your polling station may have changed since the last election.
Polling stations are usually busier early in the morning and after school, so you may want to go at a different time when it’s likely to be quieter.
For more information on voting and COVID-19, visit The Electoral Commission website.
If you were planning to vote in person or are someone’s proxy, but find you can’t go to the polling station for reasons related to COVID-19, you’ll be able to apply for an emergency proxy vote up until 5pm on polling day.
