The deadline for registering as an elector and for applying for, amending or cancelling a postal vote is 5pm on Wednesday 18th April.
If you’ve never voted in person before then you may find it helpful to visit the Electoral Commission’s polling station walk-through at www.aboutmyvote.co.uk
You can choose to vote by post if you cannot or do not wish to attend your polling station. The deadline for applying to vote by post for these elections is 5pm on Wednesday 18th April 2012.
If you have applied for a postal vote you will shortly receive your postal ballot paper pack. Please read the instructions carefully when completing the statement included with your ballot paper.
You may also wish to consider appointing a proxy to vote on your behalf if you are incapacitated or unable to attend a polling station in person. The deadline for this is 5pm on Wednesday 25th April 2012.
All eligible electors should have already received a polling card informing them where their polling station is and how to cast their vote.
You can exercise your democratic right by voting at your nearest polling station between 7am and 10pm on Thursday 3rd May.
The count takes place from 10pm on Thursday 3rd May at Southend Leisure and Tennis Centre with the results being announced in the early hours of Friday 4th May.
