Kirklees Council have provided more information ahead of the upcoming elections on Thursday.
The Council have shared a video (below) across their social channels detailing key information that voters need to know about what to expect on election day. Detailed in the video, social distancing must be observed and face coverings must be worn unless medically exempt. Voters are reminded to bring their own pen or pencil to mark their choices, but the Council have confirmed that sanitised pencils will be made available in case voters forget to bring one.
A number of residents across areas of Kirklees have also reported that they have not yet received their postal votes. Those people affected are urged to call Electoral Services on 01484 221650 in order to rectify the issue. You are also able to hand in your completed postal votes at your local polling station on Election Day.
Polling stations may have changed since the last election. Details can be found on your ‘Polling Card’ or alternative online at https://wheredoivote.co.uk.
If a voter is experiencing any of the Covid-19 symptoms, they are warned not to attend their polling station and instead should contact Electoral Services on the above number.
As part of this Election, voters will also be voting to elect the first ever Mayor of the West Yorkshire Combined Authority. Last week, Huddersfield Times produced an article explaining more about the role of a West Yorkshire Mayor and how it will affect you.
