There are two main elections being held in East Devon next month.
District, town and parish elections are on Thursday 2 May, and a European Parliamentary election is on Thursday 23 May.
Poll cards for the district, town and parish elections have now been sent out to registered voters in the district who are reminded to carefully check where their polling station is.
East Devon District Council is also preparing for the European Parliamentary election following the delay to Britain leaving the European Union.
The election will take place unless Britain leaves the EU before.
These elections are conducted by the regional returning officer in Bournemouth with East Devon District Council producing poll cards and postal votes, and running the polling stations, and a local count which will take place on Sunday, 26 May.
The deadline to register to vote for the European elections is Tuesday 7 May and the quickest way to register is by using the government registration website - www.gov.uk/register-to-vote. All you will need to complete the online process is your National Insurance number.
If you want to check if you are registered to vote or you would like to register by completing a paper form, then please contact the East Devon Electoral Services Helpline on 01395 571529 or email [email protected]
