The LGA have informed us that the Electoral Commission has now published guidance around polling station considerations for the 2021 May elections.
There is other guidance already published, so please do take a look at our COVID-19 elections Hub.
The LGA is keen to make the case to Government around the additional costs that these elections will incur. If your council is taking financial decisions about venues, staffing and equipment now, please ensure they are included in your council’s financial returns. Please also consider getting in touch with the LGA and share any financial modelling or projections you have of the additional costs of these elections by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
