Publication of Notice of Parliamentary Election

Council / 05 May 2017

A UK Parliamentary General Election will be held on Thursday 8 June 2017 following the publication of the Notice of Election.

In Peterborough voting will take place for two parliamentary seats: Peterborough and North West Cambridgeshire.

On Thursday 11 May the Notice of Poll will be published confirming parliamentary candidate nominations, election agents and the statements of those persons nominated. This information will be available through the council’s website.

Residents getting ready to cast their votes are reminded of the important dates and information in the run up to 8 June:

The deadline to register to vote is Monday 22 May. For anyone not yet registered it's quick and easy to do online on the government website. Alternatively call the council's electoral services team on 01733 452249.

Anyone who was registered to vote at the EU Referendum and has not moved home, or has registered to vote at the mayoral elections on 4 May, does not need to re-register in order to take part in the 2017 General Election.

The deadline to apply for a postal vote, or to amend an existing one, is 5pm on Tuesday 23 May. To apply for a postal vote, you must first be registered to vote. Applications should be made to the council’s electoral services team.

The deadline to apply for a proxy vote is 5pm on Wednesday 31 May. This is where a voter nominates a trusted person to cast a vote on their behalf. Again you must first be registered to vote.

On polling day, Thursday 8 June, polling stations will be open from 7am to 10pm. Polling stations are included on polling cards and also available from the council’s website.

The election results will be declared in the early hours of the following day.

Full information is available on the council’s elections section on the website, including application forms for postal and proxy votes, polling station venues and what people should do if they suspect voter fraud. For more information visit our elections section.

If you can't find what you're looking for on the council's website, you can also call the elections helpline on 01733 452249 or email electoral.services@peterborough.gov.uk.
