Thursday is polling day for parliamentary election - make your vote count

06 Jun 2017

Polling stations will be  open  on Thursday  8 June across Northumberland  for the UK Parliamentary General Election.

The polling stations will be open from 7am - 10pm at 228  community venues across the county so if you are eligible to vote, make sure you go along and cast your vote - it can really make a difference.

Over recent weeks, polling cards have been sent to residents through the post informing them  of their elector number and their local polling station. While it is helpful if the card  is brought along when residents vote,  it is  not essential, so if you’ve mislaid it, you can still vote, as long as you are registered and eligible.

Will Booth, elections manager at Northumberland County Council said:

“  By casting your vote you will be helping to decide  how the UK is run.  Voting enables you to help decide who represents your local area in parliament and it is  their job to raise local issues and support you as much as they can. ”
