Just over a week until the Police and Crime Commissioner Election

The polls open on 19 August from 7am until 10pm with the votes being counted and declared the following day (20 August).

For those not voting by post, the polling stations to use will be listed on the poll card and people are asked to check this before they set off some may have changed since the elections in May.

People don't need their poll card to vote, but it does help to speed up the process if they do.

Those who are voting by post are encouraged to send back their completed postal packs as soon as possible after they receive them.

Terence Herbert, Police Area Returning Officer, said:

I'd like to thank my team and everyone involved for all their hard work in preparing for this election, I'm so proud of everyone's efforts.

All the arrangements are in place now and, although we didn't think we'd be seeing them again so soon, it's over to the voters to have their say and we look forward to welcoming them back to our polling stations.
