Vote Safely And Please Bring Your Own Pencil

Things are going to be a bit different when it comes to voting in the Cotswolds this year.

Cotswold District Council is preparing to make sure all polling stations available for those who wish to vote in person on May 6th are safe and Covid secure.

Polling stations will be following Covid secure rules seen across shops and other indoor locations during the pandemic.

This will include voters wearing masks, using hand sanitiser, social distancing and making sure items touched in the polling booths are cleaned.

Staff will also be taking the necessary precautions to keep safe and have received additional training to help advise and support voters.

Voters are being encouraged to bring their own masks and pen or pencil on the day.
