Information for voters, St George's by-election

There will be a by-election in St George’s ward on Thursday 12 December 2019 on the same day as the General Election.

If registered to vote, residents in St George’s ward will be able to vote in the by-election at the same time as the General Election at their local polling station.

Non-British EU residents are not eligible to vote in the General Election, but can vote in the by-election. 

If this applies to you, you will be issued with a separate poll card for the by-election. It is likely that polling cards for the by-election will arrive later than the one for the General Election, but it should be with you in the next couple of weeks.
