Local Elections Thursday 5th May


Elections are being held on Thursday 5 May 2016 for local borough councillors, parish councillors and the Cheshire Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC).

The deadline to register to vote in these elections was 18 April 2016 so if you weren’t registered before this date, you won’t be able to vote.

The polling station for Appleton Thorn is at the Appleton Thorn Village Hall as usual. It will be open between 7am-10pm.  You don’t need to take your polling card with you to the polling station.  The Village Hall Bar will be open as usual in the evening but will be accessible from the rear entrance only, until the polling station closes.
