Don’t forget to return your postal votes
Published: 27 April 2021
People who registered for a postal vote for next week’s elections are being reminded to make sure they complete the paperwork and pop their vote back in the post.
“Everyone who has applied for a postal vote should now have received them,” said John Street, Exeter’s Electoral Registration and Returning Officer.
“It’s really important that people complete the paperwork and send in their vote in good time before the day of the election. Whilst we encourage people to do it in advance, there is still the opportunity to drop the sealed voting envelopes into a polling station on the day, provided it is within Exeter,” he added.
Elections take place in Exeter on Thursday 6 May. These will be for:
- Exeter City Council (14 seats)
- Devon County Council (9 seats)
- Police & Crime Commissioner
Exeter City Council will be ensuring that polling stations across the city are safe places to vote, with extra measures taken against the spread of Covid 19.
Polling stations will be open across the city between 7am and 10pm on the day of the elections and voters are being asked to wear a mask, bring their own pencil or pen and be prepared to queue.
People can find out where their polling station and a list of candidates standing in the elections by visiting the City Council website https://exeter.gov.uk/council-and-democracy/elections-and-voting/2021-city-elections/
