Register to vote in the Local Government Elections 5 May 2022

Posted on

 

Local Government Elections are coming up on Thursday 5 May 2022. If you are already registered to vote at your current address you don’t need to register again. Anyone who needs to register can do so quickly and easily online by visiting www.gov.uk/register-to-vote. Registering takes less time than it takes to make a cup of tea!

Everyone who is registered by 14 April will be sent a poll card to inform them of their polling station location, hours of the poll or whether they have a postal vote. Most polling stations have not moved but please check your poll card to make sure. New applications for postal votes, or cancellation of current postal voting arrangements, must be received by Electoral Services by 5pm on 19 April.

Further information about registering to vote and the ways you can cast your vote is available on the Council website.

On Thursday 6 May 2021, Calderdale residents will be voting for their Local Government Councillors and for the first time, a Combined Authority Mayor for West Yorkshire. In some areas there will also be Parish/Town Council by-elections.

There are a number of ways to have your say in May – you can vote in person in a polling station, by post, or by appointing someone you trust to vote on your behalf, known as a proxy vote.

If you are not registered, you can do so here. It only takes five minutes so you can do it while you run a bath or wait for your tea to brew.

This year we are encouraging you to consider voting by post. This saves a trip to the polling station and offers a safe and secure method of voting, which is particularly important due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
