Around 604,000 people across Derbyshire are eligible to vote in the county council elections and people who have registered should have received their polling cards through their doors, telling them where to go to vote. Registered voters who have not received a polling card will still be able to vote.
Derbyshire County Council Chief Executive Ian Stephenson said: “Everyone uses the services provided by the county council. That is why it is so important that people who have a vote use it and have their say.”
The deadline to register to vote in the local elections has now passed but eligible voters still have time to apply for a proxy vote. Applications must be received by 5pm on Tuesday 25 April. To find out how to apply go to www.derbyshire.gov.uk/elections for more information or contact your district or borough council direct. People can also find more information at www.aboutmyvote.co.uk
Details of people’s nearest polling station will be printed on their polling card. If people have not received a polling card they should contact their district or borough council for more information.
