Derbyshire Dales residents will be heading to the polls on Thursday 2nd May to take part in Combined County Mayoral Authority and Police and Crime Commissioner elections.

Residents across Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire will get the chance to vote for the first-ever elected East Midlands Mayor in May, after councils gave the go-ahead to devolution for the region.

Residents will also be able to vote for who should be the next Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner; the commissioner is responsible for policing across the county, ensuring the delivery of an effective and efficient police service.

Details of your polling station are available online and will also be on your polling card. You do not need to take your polling card with you, but it will speed things up at the polling station if you do.

You will need to bring an accepted form of photo ID to vote.

Pencils will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own pen or pencil to use.

These elections here in the Derbyshire Dales are being organised by your District Council. Polling stations will be open from 7am to 10pm on Thursday 2 May, with the counts taking place from 9am on Friday 3 May.
