Polling station

On 6 May 2021, the very first election for North Northamptonshire Council is set to take place with 78 councillors being elected to serve the people of North Northants.

As residents across the North of the county get ready to place their vote, you may be wondering where your polling station will be based. Find out with the click of a button by visiting Where Do I Vote. Simply type in your postcode, select your address and you will be told where you can place your vote.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, voters may find that the voting experience is slightly different to what you would normally expect. Please remember that all measures in place are there to keep voters, and staff safe and everyone who enters polling stations is expected to please respect the rules. So that voters know what to expect, we have created a short video showing the layout and process of each of our stations. You can watch it on YouTube.

Returning Officer for the North Northamptonshire election, Rob Bridge, said:

“The polling station finder is a handy tool for checking you’re going to the right place on voting day and the video shows you what you can expect when you get there.

"As a council, we’re committed to keeping all voters and staff safe, which is why we have put measures in place to make all venues as COVID secure as possible. We hope that voters will respect these measures to ensure that polling day goes as smoothly and as safely as possible.”

To find out how to apply for a proxy vote (If you're unable to vote in person you can ask someone to vote on your behalf) or an emergency proxy vote, visit our elections 2021 page. Please note the deadline to register for a proxy vote is 5pm Tuesday 27 April.

On polling day, residents will also be able to cast votes for the Northamptonshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner and to elect representatives for many of their local town and parish councils, including the first elections to new town councils for Corby, Kettering, and Wellingborough.

There will also be Neighbourhood Planning Referendums held in Ecton and Gretton.
