Burnham residents urged to check polling cards for May's election

Polling cards for May's General and Local Elections will be arriving on doormats in Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge over the Easter weekend.

Residents are being advised by Sedgemoor District Council to check their polling card to make sure that they know which polling station to use on Thursday, May 7th.

69% do not know the deadline to register to vote, with 13% thinking it is already too late to register. Residents can register to vote by visiting
