Tory Government European Election Arrangements Announced


Wolverhampton City Council has been briefing City Council on this Governments plans for the forthcoming European Union Election. This is the arrangements, interestingly the Molineux, home of the Wolves will be the counting station for election in Wolverhampton.

EU election preparations: Preparations are well underway for the planned EU election next month. Polling day will be Thursday 23 May, with the count taking place at the Molineux on Sunday 26 May.

The statement of persons nominated was published yesterday and is available on the Council’s website.

At the moment there are no plans to change any of the polling stations that will be used next week for the local elections, but we will liaise with ward councillors if any changes become necessary.

Poll cards will be sent out on Wednesday 1 May, which means they will start arriving on local election day.

Unfortunately, we have almost no control over this because of the late notice for the poll.

Our legal guidance is also very clear, that the poll cards must be sent as soon as possible, and should not be delayed.

Postal votes will be despatched between May 8 and 11.
