Voters will go to the polls on Thursday May 4th to elect a new Derbyshire County Council for the first time in four years.
Polling stations across the county will be open between 7am and 10pm as 270 candidates stand across 61 divisions, contesting all 64 county council seats.
Counting of the votes is being organised by district and borough councils in their areas on our behalf, and will take place on Friday the 5th May from 10am. Results will start to come in from across the county after that.
This election Derbyshire County Council will be running a full results service and people who want to keep up with what’s happening on the day can sign up for regular result alerts via email.
The DCC election pages (opens in a new window) will also be regularly updated for people to log on to check the latest results from May 5th.
Around 604,000 people across Derbyshire are eligible to vote in the county council elections and people who have registered should have received their polling cards through their doors, telling them where to go to vote. Registered voters who have not received a polling card will still be able to vote.
The Chief Executive of Derbyshire County Council Ian Stephenson, said:
“Everyone uses the services provided by the county council. That is why it is so important that people who have a vote use it and have their say.”
The deadline to register to vote in the local elections has now passed, but eligible voters still have time to apply for a proxy vote. Applications must be received by 5pm on Tuesday 25th of April (Next Tuesday).
Find out how to apply for a proxy vote or for more information or contact your district or borough council direct.
Details of people’s nearest polling station will be printed on your polling card. If you have not received a polling card then you should contact your district or borough council for more information.
