How to vote in today’s Uckfield Parish Poll

Voting details for the Uckfield Parish Poll have been spelled out by Wealden Council.ballot box

The council says:

On Thursday, March 12, Uckfield residents will have the opportunity to participate in the first parish poll in Wealden for more than ten years and cast a yes or no vote in response to the question:

“Do you support the removal of current on-street parking provision in Uckfield High Street?”

The rules for holding a Parish Poll do not allow poll cards – residents will supply their addresses to polling station staff to ensure that they are on the electoral roll. The rules also exclude postal votes or proxy votes.

Residents will be able to cast their vote at their usual polling stations, which will be open from 4pm to 9pm.
