WHAT VOTERS NEED TO KNOW FOR MAY 7th

With the General, Borough and Parish elections now just days away, Erewash Borough Council is reminding voters in the borough what they need to know to have their say on polling day.
· Polling stations will be open from 7am to 10pm. You should have received a card with details of your local polling station. If not, you can search for your polling station via a link from the home page of the council’s website
www.erewash.gov.uk or call the Erewash election hotline on 0115 907 1190 or email electreg@erewash.gov.uk
· When voting at a polling station, it is helpful to take your poll card with you. But if you don’t have it, don’t let that stop you – you can still vote as long as you are registered.
· Polling station staff will give you ballot papers for the General election and Erewash Borough Council election. In some areas, you will also receive a third ballot paper for your local Parish Council election.
· If you applied for a postal vote, it needs to be completed and returned in the envelope provided. If you leave it too late to post back, you can drop it off at a polling station within your constituency or at either Long Eaton or Ilkeston Town Hall.
