Postal voters - it's not too late to vote!
Registered postal voters can still take part in the Mayoral and District Council elections and national referendum on Thursday 5 May by returning their postal votes to their local polling station or to the Civic Centre.
Postal voters who have forgotten to return their votes can still take part by returning their papers to their local polling station between 7am and 10pm on Thursday 5 May. No postal votes can be accepted outside polling hours
They can also deliver their papers to Mansfield Civic Centre. If the building is closed it can be posted through the letterbox but must be done so before 10pm. The letterbox will be emptied at 10pm and any votes posted after this time will not be counted.
More than 11,000 people are registered to vote by post at this election, a record high for the Mansfield District. By Wednesday afternoon around 63% of postal votes had been returned, meaning that approximately 3,000 registered postal voters are yet to return their ballot papers.
Meanwhile, voters are being reminded to make sure they know the location of their polling station as many will be casting their vote in unfamiliar surroundings after a review of polling station locations.
Changes have been made to some of the polling stations across the district, with the overall number increasing from 68 to 70.
It is vital therefore that voters check their polling card to make sure they know where to cast their vote. The polling card will contain the location of the correct polling station and a map.
Polling stations will be open from 7am to 10pm on election day.
