Voting at a polling station

The pre-election period for the General Election on Thursday 4 July starts today (Tuesday 4 June).

This is the period of heightened sensitivity in the run-up to polling day when specific restrictions are in place for the Council’s publicity and use of resources. 

During this time, we might remove comments made on our social media channels that show support to a particular political party or candidate. We may also restrict comments on certain posts if we believe the subject matter could spark political debate.
