Polling day arrangements for Manchester City Council local elections

Voters across the city go to the polls on Thursday 5 May 2022 to have their say in the Manchester City Council local elections.

A total of 237 polling stations across the city will be open from 7am to 10pm on the day.

One seat in each of Manchester’s 32 wards – totalling one third of the Council’s 96 elected members – is up for election.   

If you vote in person, you should have received a poll card which tells you which polling station to use. You can also check this on www.manchester.gov.uk/pollingstations 

Anyone who has a postal vote is encouraged to complete it and return it as soon as possible. But if you leave it too late to post, you can still drop it off at any polling station in the Manchester City Council area. 

Joanne Roney OBE,  Returning Officer for Manchester said: “We don’t want anyone who wants to vote to miss out and are keen to ensure that those who are voting in person are aware of polling day arrangements. 

“Your poll card will show which polling station you need to vote at, or you can check our website. You will only be able to vote in person at this polling station. But if you’re already registered to vote, you don’t need to have your poll card with you. 

“If you’ve got a postal vote, please make sure to complete and return it in good time.”
