New polling stations created to support voters

Published Monday, 22 November 2021

City of York Council has created several new polling stations in the York area during the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner By-Election on 25 November 2021.

Some voters may find they are being asked to vote at a different polling station to their usual one. This is due to number of reasons including avoiding disrupting schools, allowing COVID-19-safe measures to be put in place and because some stations are not available on polling day.

All electors have been sent their poll card which tells them where their polling station will be located. All polling station staff will be able to redirect voters if necessary.

Ian Floyd, Local Returning Officer for City of York Council, said:

Please check your poll cards because some polling stations have changed. It’s important that you exercise your democratic rights and vote, so please make sure you know where to go on 25 November.

You can find the full list of polling stations for the November 2021 election and any changes online. Voters can also check by contacting the council’s elections office on telephone: 01904 551007 or by emailing electoral.services@york.gov.uk.
