Ahead of tomorrow’s local elections voters in Scarborough, Whitby and Filey are reminded to check their polling stations before they leave the house.

Following a boundary review last year, the number of wards in the borough has reduced from 25 to 20.

This means some people will find themselves in a new or renamed ward and possibly with a polling station that they have not used before.

A spokesman for Scarborough Council said: “People can check the location of their polling station by referring to the details on their poll card or a list of polling stations is available to download from the local elections section at scarborough.gov.uk/elections.”

The votes for Scarborough Council’s 46 seats will be counted the following day on Friday, with the first results expected around noon.
