Not received your postal voting papers? Please contact us now!
Worcester City Council is asking anyone who has requested a postal vote for Thursday's elections and has not yet received their voting papers to contact them as quickly as possible.
The City Council has become aware that a number of people across the city have not received their postal voting papers, despite having requested them for the 6 May polls. An investigation is underway to establish how many people have been affected and why this issue has arisen.
"Our priority is to make sure residents don't miss out on their democratic right, so we want to hear from you as soon as possible and make arrangements to get your voting papers to you.
"We will work to establish the cause of this issue and how widespread it is, but our immediate priority is to make sure that people can vote in Thursday's election."
The City Council has become aware of the issue after being contacted by several candidates who had been told by residents in their areas that ballot papers had not arrived.
The majority of Worcester residents will be have the opportunity to cast their votes in three separate polls on May 6.
Elections for members of Worcestershire County Council and the West Mercia Police & Crime Commissioner are taking place across the city.
In the following 12 of the city's 15 wards there are also polls for members of Worcester City Council: Arboretum; Battenhall; Bedwardine; Cathedral; Claines; Gorse Hill; Nunnery; Rainbow Hill; St Clement; St John; St Stephen; and Warndon.
The elections for Worcester City Council and the West Mercia Police & Crime Commissioner were postponed from last year because of the pandemic. The County Council election was always scheduled to be held in 2021.
