Use your vote on June 23

Voters in the district are being reminded to use their vote in the EU Referendum on Thursday 23 June.

Polling stations across the district will be open from 7am to 10pm on Thursday 23 June. Anyone in the queue at a polling station at 10pm will still be able to vote.

Maps to polling stations are available on the Council website at www.wakefield.gov.uk/elections 

Poll cards have been delivered to all those registered to vote. Residents who have not yet received their poll cards are asked to contact the Electoral Services Office immediately on 01924 305023.

Joanne Roney OBE, Wakefield Council’s Chief Executive and elections returning officer, said “With polling day around the corner, we want to make sure that everyone knows how they can cast their vote and can easily take part on Thursday 23 June.

“Turnout could be as high as 80%, so please bring your polling card with you when you come to vote. You can still vote without it, but it means we can deal with any queries faster.

“If anyone has any questions then there’s lots of information on how to vote at www.aboutmyvote.co.uk or they can call our team on 01924 305023 and we’ll be able to help.”

The Wakefield result will be made available on the Council’s website at www.wakefield.gov.uk/elections
