The deadlines for registering to vote or applying to vote by post and proxy, have now passed.

All registered United Kingdom, European Union and Commonwealth citizens are entitled to vote in the Local Election, as long as they are 18 or over on polling day.

If you have applied to vote by post, the council’s Elections team needs to receive your postal vote by 10pm on Thursday 3 May for it to be counted.

Poll cards and polling stations

If you are due to vote in person at a polling station, your poll card will tell you the address of that polling station, including a map of its location, and confirm the date and time of the poll.

Polling stations will be open from 7am to 10pm on Thursday 3 May.

You do have to be on the Electoral Register to vote in this election but you do not need to take the poll card with you to the polling station to be able to vote.

Information on those standing for election, along with a list of the polling stations for each ward, can be found here, under Notice of Poll.

The votes will be counted on Friday 4 May at the Civic Centre, and the results for each ward will be declared as they come in. Visit the elections page or follow us @LBofHounslow to get the results as they happen.
