It’s all change for Cheshire East’s voting wards

It’s all change for Cheshire East’s voting wards – so find out how it is affecting YOU by visiting the Council’s easy-to-use website

IT’S all change for Cheshire East’s electoral wards.

The number of Borough wards is rising from 27 to 52 and the number of councillors increasing by just one – from 81 to 82. But help is at hand to show you how it affects you – just visit the Council’s helpful website.

It just takes a quick few clicks on Cheshire East’s home page – at – to find your new electoral ward and access other helpful facts about your local area.

Just enter your postcode in the home page section ‘Your local area’, on the right of the screen, and click. Then click on the ‘Community Information’ section.

You can even find out what leisure facilities, schools, libraries or children’s centres are most local to you by clicking on linked web pages.

Borough and parish elections – and a nationwide referendum on the alternative vote system – are taking place less than a month away, on Thursday, May 5.

And the Council is urging voters to make sure they are registered to vote – before it’s too late. The deadline is on Thursday, April 14.

Cheshire East Council Chief Executive Erika Wenzel, who will be the Returning Officer at the elections, said: “The Council website really is an invaluable source of information about your ward, the election, council services and much, much more.

“This election is your opportunity to have a voice on the issues that affect all our lives. I would urge everyone to ensure they are registered to vote and to cast their vote on Election Day. It really is too important to miss out.”

It only takes a few minutes 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:

The referendum is on the voting system used for elections to Parliament. The question being put to voters on Thursday, May 5, is: “At present, the UK uses the ‘first past the post’ system to elect MPs to the House of Commons. Should the ‘alternative vote’ system be used instead?”
