Have your say on 6 May at local elections

On Thursday 6 May, residents will vote on who should represent them in the County, District, Parish and Police and Crime Commissioner elections.

Residents will also be voting on the referendum on the Caterham, Chaldon and Whyteleafe Neighbourhood Plan, a community-led framework which will guide the future development, regeneration and conservation of the three areas.

Our polling stations will be a safe place to vote and we’re putting measures in place to make sure they’re completely Covid-secure. The Electoral Commission has produced a short video on what to expect when voting in person.

Voting in a polling station is not the only way to cast your vote. You’ll also be able to vote by post or by appointing someone to vote on your behalf, which is known as a proxy vote.

Some key dates to be aware of:

  • To be able to vote, you must register by 19 April.
  • If you want to vote by post, you’ll need to apply by 5pm on 20 April.
  • Applications to vote by proxy must be submitted by 5pm on 27 April.

Residents have started receiving their polling cards this week. This will tell you which polling station you visit to cast your vote, although you won’t need to bring it with you when voting in person on 6 May.

Up to date information on all the elections can be found on our website.
