Local elections to go ahead in May

Political parties told not to leaflet during lockdown

Latest reports from the Government suggest local elections will go ahead on Thursday 6 May.

In Liverpool, there will be four elections:

  • Liverpool CC Mayoral Election – to elect a Mayor for Liverpool.
  • Local Elections – to elect councillors for all 30 wards in the city.
  • Police & Crime Commissioner Election – to elect a Police and Crime Commissioner for Merseyside.
  • Combined Authority Mayoral Election – to elect a Mayor for the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority.

Plans are already being put in place to make sure that if you vote at a polling station, it is as covid-safe as possible.

Anyone voting in person should wear a face covering (unless medically exempt) and social distancing must be adhered to at all times. Hand Sanitiser stations will be available at all locations as well as pens and pencils to help people cast their vote, however people are encouraged to bring their own.

Alternatively, residents can choose to vote via post or ask a proxy to vote on their behalf. To do this, applications need to be made early so the request can be processed. To find out more and to apply, visit electoralcommission.org.uk/voter
