VOTERS are being urged to check poll cards for details of their polling stations ahead of the upcoming elections.

Oldham residents are being warned that some polling stations may have changed, in some cases due to the Covid-19 safety requirements of this year’s elections. Voters can only vote at the polling station listed on their poll cards and therefore need to check these details ahead of Thursday May 6.

Residents do not need to take their poll cards with them to vote, but doing so may save time when polling station staff verify voters’ details on the electoral register.

This year, voters will choose who represents them in up to three elections for the Mayor for Greater Manchester Combined Authority, local councillors, and the City Mayor of Salford.

Voters have a range of options for casting their ballot – in person, by post, or by appointing someone they trust to vote in their place, known as a proxy vote.

Thorough safety measures have been put in place to make voting at polling stations as safe as possible
