Released on 10 May 2017 Press Release
The General Election takes place on Thursday 8 June 2017 and poll cards notifying residents of this election have now been sent out.
The poll cards inform residents in the Constituency where their polling station is and when they can vote from, 7am until 10pm. Electors do not, however, have to produce their poll cards at the polling station to be able to vote - it just makes it easier.
The majority of the District falls within the Stratford-on-Avon Constituency, however part of the District is in the Kenilworth and Southam Constituency. Electors should be guided by the information on their poll card as to where they should vote.
To be able to vote at these elections residents must either be on the electoral register or have applied to be so by Monday 22 May. It's easy to register to vote, just go on-line to www.gov.uk/register-to-vote - it only takes 5 minutes.
If you are in doubt as to whether or not you are on the electoral register at your current address, please contact Stratford District Council's Elections Office on 01789 260208.
If you are on the electors list and able to vote in this election, you may request a postal vote. This is especially useful if you are unable to get to a polling station on polling day, due to health reasons or maybe on holiday or working away.
All completed application forms for postal votes must be submitted before 5pm on Tuesday 23 May 2017. Alternatively, you may apply for a proxy vote before the deadline of Wednesday 31 May.
