Selby & Tadcaster Polling Stations on the Move Ahead of EU Elections


9:40am 12th May 2014

On Thursday May 22 residents will be able to cast their vote in the European elections in order to elect candidates to represent the Yorkshire and Humber region in the European Parliament.

This year there are a few changes to some of the polling stations in the area. The polling station for Selby west has moved from Selby High school and will now be at Selby Rugby Club on Sandhill Lane, which offers a lot more parking. The Tadcaster East and West Town centre area residents will now cast their vote at Riley Smith hall instead of at Manor Farm Youth Centre.

All designated polling stations across the district will be open from 7am-10pm. Your polling card will have information about where your polling station is, however if you are unsure information is available on the Council's website.

When you go to cast your vote on the day you will need to tell the polling station staff your name and address, you can also show them your poll card but this is not essential. Everyone must cast their vote in private and not show others how they are voting.

Mary Weastell, Chief Executive of Selby District Council and Returning Officer overseeing the elections said; "We urge all residents to take time out of their day to visit their polling station and cast their vote. European Elections can often have a low turnout so we hope as many residents as possible come on the day to make their vote count."

The results of the European elections will be announced on the evening of Sunday May 25 after all other countries across Europe have closed their polls. Results will be published on the Council's website as well as on facebook and twitter @selbydc.

If you have any questions about casting your vote or accessibility issues you would like to discuss contact the council via email at info@selby.gov.uk or by telephone on 01757705101.
