European Elections – What Voters Need to Know

Daventry News -

Daventry District Council (DDC) is reminding voters what they need to know to take part in the European Parliamentary Election this week.

Polling stations will be open from 7am to 10pm this Thursday, 23 May, when Daventry District residents will be casting their votes to elect 5 East Midlands MEPs by choosing a party on the ballot paper.

When voting at a polling station, it is helpful for people to take their polling card with them, but if they don’t have it they can still vote. The only exception to this rule is anonymous electors, who must present their poll cards in order to vote.

Polling station staff will give people ballot papers for the election, provided they have arrived at the polling station by 10pm.

Postal votes must be received by the Returning Officer by 10pm on Thursday, 23 May. Anyone who has left it too late to post can drop it off at their polling station or at Daventry District Council, Lodge Road, Daventry, NN11 4FP.

Further information, including a list of candidates and the Notice of Poll containing the locations of polling stations, can be viewed online at

After close of poll on Thursday, DDC will verify the number of votes cast in Daventry District. The votes will not be counted until the evening of Sunday 26 May when polling stations close in other European countries.

DDC will be counting the Daventry District votes on Sunday – this will be collated along with other district and borough results for the East Midlands region at Kettering, with a Declaration of Result expected shortly after 10pm.
