Covid-19 and the Election

Due to Covid-19 and the ongoing restrictions, the elections this year will require additional provisions to make polling stations safe for voters and staff. Risk assessments are being undertaken and a number of measures will be implemented to ensure everyone's safety. Staff will be issued with safety equipment such as screens, hand sanitizer, gloves, masks, additional signage and cleaning products to keep the polling station clean throughout the day. There may be a limit to the number of voters that can enter a station at any one time, one-way systems will need to be implemented, social distancing will be in force and voters will be required to wear a mask over their nose and mouth in polling stations (unless exempt). Voters will also be encouraged to bring their own pencil or pen with them, but we will still be providing pencils as usual. The safety of voters and staff is very important to us - training will be delivered to all staff on best practice for delivering a Covid secure election.

People in the uncontested wards will have received polling cards from us for the election on 2 May. However, the Rillington, Ryedale South West and Wolds wards (list of parishes available on these pages) won’t be contested at the election because no alternative candidates are registered. That means there’ll be no polling station in your area for 2 May.

The District of Ryedale is divided into 121 Parishes of which 91 Parishes are large enough to have their own Parish Councillors. The remaining Parishes hold regular Parish Meetings.

Every Parish must have an annual Parish Meeting, which all Local Government electors for the Parish are entitled to attend. Elections for Parish/Town Council Elections are held at the same time as District Elections and Parish/Town Councillors are elected for a term of four years.

For guidance from the Electoral Commission for Candidates and Agents, please see here.
