Don’t forget to vote: local elections on Thursday 5th May

Find out if you have elections and where you can vote.

By Mumsnet HQ | Last updated May 4, 2022

Local elections take place in Scotland, Wales and many areas of England tomorrow, as well as National Assembly elections in Northern Ireland. And there’s even a referendum in Bristol!

Voting in these elections is key as these politicians will be taking decisions that affect you and your children - on everything from childcare and education to green spaces, parking (#parkingthreads), transport and funding for local areas.

Enter your postcode below to find out:

  • If you have elections and which elections
  • Who your candidates are
  • Where you can vote
