Polling stations for local elections announced

The polling stations where residents will be able to vote in the local, parish and Police and Crime Commissioner elections have been published today.

All 60 seats on Peterborough City Council will be contested on Thursday 5 May 2016, in the first 'all out' election for over a decade.

This is because some ward boundaries have changed, which also means that some electors will be voting at a different polling station this time. As a result, all voters should read their polling cards carefully to check where they should cast their vote.

Parish council elections will also be held for Bainton and Ashton, Barnack, East, Goldhay East, Hampton Hargate, Hampton Vale, Helpston, North-East, Orton Longueville, Orton Waterville, Southorpe, Ufford and Wothorpe.

An election for Police and Crime Commissioner for Cambridgeshire will take place on the same day.

In addition to changes to ward boundaries, there are three new polling stations where local residents can cast their votes this year.

These are:

  • Peterborough & District Bowls Centre, Burton Street, PE1 5HA
  • Brookside Methodist Church, 40 Gunthorpe Road, PE4 7TG 
  • Mobile Unit, Manor Drive Car Park, Gunthorpe, PE4 7AJ

Rachel Parnell, Elections Manager for Peterborough City Council, said: "From time to time there is a need to find new polling stations when previous ones become unavailable. 

"The new arrangements mean that some people will be voting at a different location from previous elections, so I would urge all voters to visit the council website to find out where they will need to cast their vote in May. Voters will also be able to check their poll cards when they receive one - these will state the address of their polling station."
