Expect your poll cards any day now

Poll Cards 1

Poll cards will be landing on the doormats of voters across Cheshire East in the next few days.

The white poll cards and pink postal vote poll cards will be mailed to electors this week (week beginning March 28).

The election will be held on May 5 for Cheshire East Council and contested town and parish councils. A national referendum on the alternative vote system will take place on the same day. 

There will be separate ballot papers for each council election and the referendum.

Cheshire East Council Chief Executive Erika Wenzel, who will be the Returning Officer at the elections, said: “When you receive your poll card, check the details are correct and keep it to hand as it tells you where your local polling station will be and provides other useful voting information.

“It is really important that people don’t miss out on the opportunity to vote and ensure they have a voice on the important local issues that affect all our daily lives.

“Now is the time to make sure you are registered to vote before the deadline on Thursday, April 14, and to apply for a postal or proxy vote.”

To find out if you are registered to vote, or to request a postal vote, ring the Council’s electoral services team on 0300 123 5016 or email them at:

To request voter registration forms, visit the Council’s ‘Registering to Vote’ webpage at: or print off the online forms from:

This will be the first election using new electoral ward boundaries for wards in Cheshire East following a review by the Boundary Commission. This means there will be 82 councillors representing Cheshire East Council. 

The number of wards has changed from 27 to 52. Depending on electorate figures, some wards will have one councillor and some wards will have two or three councillors.
