Local Elections and Mayoral Referendum – Thursday 3 May 2012

Remember if you’re not registered, you won’t be able to vote!

Registering to vote

Most people register to vote using the form that the Council sends to each household every year. If you are not on the electoral register currently you will need to complete a voter registration form and send it to the Electoral Services to arrive by Wednesday 18 April

Location of polling stations

Your polling card will tell you where your polling station is. It is often a nearby school or community centre. You can also find out where your polling station is on our website www.sheffield.gov.uk/elections.

Poll cards

Everybody who is registered will receive their polling cards this week.   If you do not receive a poll card by 9 April, visit the council website to find out where your polling station is.

Postal vote application forms

If you want to vote by post the deadline for registering is fast approaching. To vote by post, you will need to fill in an application form and send it to the Electoral services to arrive by 5pm on Wednesday 18 April.

Vote by proxy

If you can’t go to the polling station and don’t wish to vote by post, you may be able to vote by proxy.  This means allowing somebody to vote on your behalf. You will need to fill in an application form and send it to the Electoral Services to arrive by Wednesday 25 April

Voting in person

Polling stations are open from 7.00am – 10.00pm on Thursday 3 May. If you have not been issued with a ballot paper by 10.00pm, you will not be able to cast your vote.

If you have any questions or want to find out more on your voting options visit our website at www.sheffield.gov.uk/elections or contact the Elections team on (0114) 273 4093 or by emailing elections@sheffield.gov.uk.
