POLLING cards are being sent out to Solihull voters ahead of this year’s local elections.
On May 5 votes will be cast to elect one councillor to represent each of the authority’s 17 wards.
A list of candidates standing in each area will be available on the council website from 4pm on April 6.
Residents who wish to vote and aren’t already registered to do so must register by April 14.
Anyone who receives a polling card will be registered and won’t need to re-register.
For those who would rather not vote in person or won’t be around on May 5, they can apply for a postal or proxy vote.
The deadline to apply for a postal vote is 5pm on April 19, and to apply to vote by proxy it’s 5pm on April 26.
Solihull Council is encouraging voters to wear a mask inside the polling station and bring their own pen or pencil.
There will be masks and sanitiser available at each polling station.
Anyone who is self-isolating due to Covid-19 and misses the deadline to vote by proxy, can apply for an emergency proxy up until 5pm on polling day.
