As is the case in many parts of the country, East Sussex voters go to the polls on Thursday 2nd May. These elections are critical and the result will have a big effect on you and your pocket.
Every vote counts and yours is really important but if you don't use your vote, it will be too late on May 3rd if if you don't like the result.
If you are likely to be away on holiday or will be unable to vote at the Polling Station on the day, you can register to vote by post or request a Proxy vote to enable someone you trust to go and vote on your behalf.

However, if like me you prefer to go along in person and cast your vote at the Polling Station simply go to your polling station between the hours of 7am and 10pm with your polling card and you will be al to vote. Provided you have registered to vote Council will send you your polling card a few weeks before polling day but do not worry if you loose your polling card, simply take a form of identification with you to the polling station on Election Day and the staff will check you against the electoral role and provide you with your ballot paper.
