Changes to Polling Stations
Following a review of Polling Places, there have been changes to the locations of some polling stations:
Electors in Biggin, who previously voted at a mobile polling station outside the Blacksmith's Arms will now vote at Church Fenton village hall.
Electors in Newton Kyme, who previously voted at a mobile polling station in Newton Kyme village, will now vote at the Riley Smith Hall in Tadcaster.
Electors in the Staynor Hall area of Selby, who previously voted at a mobile polling station in Staynor Hall, will now vote at the Staynor Hall Primary Academy school.
Some electors in Selby, who normally vote at the Scott Road Community Centre will now vote at the Coultish Centre. Some electors will continue to vote at the Scott Road Community Centre so please check your poll card carefully.
Electors who live on Clog Mill Gardens are advised to check their poll card carefully, as some electors will be required to vote at Wistow Jubilee Hall, others will be required to vote at the Coultish Centre in Selby. This is because the Clog Mill Gardens development crosses two separate electoral divisions.
