Change of polling station in Normanton

Wakefield Council is informing residents of a small change to a polling station in Normanton. Voters that use the Alice Bacon Community Centre at Market Street in Normanton will need to visit the library section of building in the upcoming elections.

Joanne Roney OBE, Returning Officer, said: "We hope that this small change to the voting arrangements at Normanton won't inconvenience voters. We want to give voters advance notice that the polling station will have moved from the usual space in the Alice Bacon Community Centre to the library part of the building.

"The deadline to register to vote is Tuesday May 6 so I urge local people to make sure they are registered and know where to go on the day of the election."

The local and European Parliamentary elections are taking place on Thursday May 22 and give residents the chance to vote for local councillors and representatives in the European Parliament.

Poll cards will be delivered to voters who have registered from April 14 across the district. Any voters receiving a poll card which indicates their polling station is at the Alice Bacon Community Centre will need to go the library area to cast their vote in this year's elections. Residents who have not received a poll card should contact us for advice.

On polling day – May 22 - Normanton Library will be closed to normal business.
