Pendle Council is reminding voters to make sure they’re ready to take part in the local elections next Thursday (3 May).

Gillian Turpin, Pendle Council’s Elections Manager, said: “It’s so important that everyone who is registered to vote uses that vote on Thursday 3 May.

“This is your chance to have a say on the councillors who represent you on a whole range of issues affecting your everyday life.”

To find out who is standing for election in your part of Pendle and to find your polling station, go to www.pendle.gov.uk/elections      

There’s also a step by step guide of what to do if you’re a first time voter, or haven’t voted in a while and need a bit of a reminder.

Gillian added: “Our polling station staff will also be happy to explain things to you on election day.

“But please remember to go to the polling station printed on the poll card that was delivered to your home – you can’t choose where to go to cast your vote.

“Voters who have opted to vote by post need to make sure their postal ballot pack is returned by 10pm and can hand it in at their polling station if they don’t have time to return it by post.”

The count will take place on Friday 4 May. Results will be posted that day.

To keep up to date with Pendle’s election results, like Pendle Council’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/pendlecouncil, or follow @PendleBC on Twitter.

The results will also be published on the Council's website www.pendle.gov.uk
