BASINGSTOKE & DEANE BC - May elections update

May elections update

Elections this year will take place on Thursday 6 May, the Government has confirmed, and will see residents in Basingstoke and Deane voting on who will represent them on the borough council, county council and, possibly, their parish council and as Police and Crime Commissioner.

Our elections will be run in accordance with the electoral commission’s guidance and work began at the council last year to prepare for running a safe election in May. This includes putting arrangements in place to help keep staff and voters safe at our polling stations and counts. We are reminding residents that they have the option to vote by post or proxy, applying to do this is very simple and we would encourage they do this early.
