Poll Cards for May Elections
Poll Cards and Allocation to Polling Stations
There has been an issue with the computer system which has unfortunately resulted in a number of Polling Stations where the information has reverted to an alphabetic list rather than the usual road allocation. The changes made last year to make it easier for voters have been removed.
This is something that will be worked on to correct for future elections but is too late to change the allocation at this stage.
If you are unable to get to the allocated Polling Station they can of course apply for a postal vote or a proxy vote.
The closing time/date for postal applications is 5.00 pm on Tuesday 18 April and the closing time/date for proxy applications is 5.00 pm on Tuesday 27 April.
The Polling Areas affected are KR (Gilingham Town), AB (Blandford Central) and KA (Shaftesbury East).
