If you can, please vote on May 6th. I know they are only local elections but they set the tone for the national picture.
If you can’t get to the polling station physically then you can register to vote by post.
Postal voting registration is now closed. Details are here.
Information about the candidates in your ward can be found at Who Can I Vote For.
