Ormskirk Advertiser - - Student Life -

VOT­ERS all over West Lan­cashire will go to the polls on Thurs­day, May 4 for the Lan­cashire County Coun­cil elec­tions.

But you can vote in the elec­tions even if you can’t get to your polling sta­tion on that day.

If you don’t think you will be able to go to your polling sta­tion then you can ap­ply for a postal vote.

Al­ter­na­tively you can ap­ply for a proxy vote, where some­one you nom­i­nate can go to your polling sta­tion to cast your vote on your be­half.

Kim Web­ber, deputy re­turn­ing of­fi­cer for West Lan­cashire, said: “You don’t need to be away or be house­bound to ap­ply for a postal or a proxy vote.

“Con­tact the bor­ough coun­cil as soon as you can and make sure you can vote in these elec­tions.

“Any­one who wants to vote in this year’s elec­tion, ei­ther by post, proxy or go­ing to the polling sta­tion, must be on the Elec­toral Reg­is­ter.” reg­is­ter­tovote. For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, email elec­tions.of­fice@west­lancs.gov.uk.

If you do not have ac­cess to the in­ter­net you should ask the elec­tions of­fice for a pa­per reg­is­tra­tion form to be sent to you.

The clos­ing date to reg­is­ter to vote at the May elec­tions is Thurs­day, April 13.
