A spokesperson for Somerset West and Taunton, has told Tone News: “Putting a cross in a box might seem simple, but there are plenty of things voters need to consider in order to be ready for May’s local election.
“Your poll card will tell you the location of your polling station, and you will find more information on how to take part at www.yourvotematters.co.uk.
Voters can also get in touch with the team here at Somerset West and Taunton with any further queries. There’s lots of information on our website: www.somersetwestandtaunton.gov.uk/elections-and-voting/
“If you are registered, you do not need your poll card to vote, however, we would encourage you to bring it with you to make the process quicker and more efficient.
Some polling stations have changed this year but you can easily check on www.wheredoivote.co.uk – all you need is your postcode.”
Polling stations will be open from 7am to 10pm on Thursday 2 May. Voters who have opted to vote by post must return their postal ballot pack by 10pm and can hand it in at their polling station if they don’t have time to return it by post.
