Elections on 6 May 2021

Re Covid 19 pandemic – elections on 6th May 2021 for Hyndburn Borough Council, Lancashire County Council and the Lancashire Police & Crime Commissioner

Although it is possible that the May elections may yet be postponed, the latest Government advice is that these will all go ahead on Thursday 6th May this year as normal.

The Council is therefore working to ensure that you can cast your vote in safety. This means that things will run a little differently this year, including enhanced cleaning throughout the day and other measures to reduce risk of infection.

What will be different about the upcoming elections?

  • You may have to wait outside during busy times as the number of people admitted into each polling station will be limited.
  • You are encouraged to wear a mask on entry to the polling station, unless exempt. Please remember to bring one with you.
  • You may want to bring your own pen or pencil to mark your ballot paper to help with infection control.

Can I vote via post?

Yes, absolutely. If you would like a postal vote application form please email us at elections@hyndburnbc.gov.uk or call 01254 388 111 and we will send one out to you as soon as possible.

But remember, you do not need to take any action, or make another application, if you are already registered with us to vote by post

How will I know if anything changes?

If the May elections are postponed, we will update you. Please keep an eye on our website and social media accounts for the latest updates about the elections here in Hyndburn.
