Make your mark this Thursday

South Cambridgeshire voters are being reminded that polling stations will be open from 7am to 10pm this Thursday (7 May) for them to cast their vote in Parliamentary, District Council and Parish elections.

Voters are also advised:

  • you don’t need your polling card with you to be able to vote
  • if you haven’t returned your postal vote, completed and sealed voting packs can be dropped off at your polling station and your vote will still count
  • you can only cast your vote at the polling station your home address is registered under – this is listed on your polling card or you can find it using our Find your polling station map
  • if voters have a disability, polling station staff are able to offer a range of help from large print ballot papers to refer to, to helping voters mark their ballot paper.

Candidate lists and previous election results for South Cambridgeshire Parliamentary Constituency and South Cambridgeshire District Council seats can also be found on our 7 May elections page:

Jean Hunter, chief executive and elections returning officer at South Cambridgeshire District Council, said: “We want to encourage as many people as possible to turn out to vote. We have over 300 elections staff working in 124 polling stations on Thursday ready and willing to help. If you need any advice on the voting process, or help to vote on the day, please do ask.”
