Safety advice for heading to the polls

Voters are being asked to wear a face covering, bring their own pen or pencil and clean their hands when entering the polling station, as well as keeping a safe distance from others.

Anyone who has symptoms of Covid-19 or has been asked self-isolate should not attend.

Voters who develop symptoms, or are asked to self-isolate shortly before polling day, have until 5pm on polling day May 6 to apply for an emergency proxy vote.

This will then allow them to nominate someone they trust to vote on their behalf.

Cheshire East Council’s chief executive Lorraine O’Donnell, who is the returning officer for elections in the borough, said: “Your poll card will tell you where to find your polling station.

“Make sure you check the information on your polling card as your polling station might have chanced since the last elections.

“You do not need your poll card to vote, however, we encourage you to bring it with you to make the process quicker and more efficient.”

Polling stations will be open across the borough from 7am to 10pm.
