You Can Vote

Local Lib Dem Party Chair John Vincent welcomed the announcement that resident EU citizens will be able to vote and stand in the Thursday, 6 May 2021 local elections.

The coronavirus pandemic has seen the 2020 Borough Council local election pushed back to 6 May this year. Taking place at the same time will be the 2021 Surrey County Council local election and the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) election.  To vote in any election in the UK, you must be registered to vote.

John Vincent said: “EU citizens who have chosen to make their home in the UK contribute a great deal. It’s more than appropriate that they are able to vote and stand in our local elections.”

An "EU citizen" is someone with citizenship of one of the EU Member States.
