Polling Station notice       Polling Booths

The polling station was in the main part of Willersey Village Hall. This was to maximise social distancing and ventilation. It was open from 7:00am until 10:00pm. You did not have to bring your poll card with you but it was helpful if you did as it speeds up the voting process.
All voters were required to wear a face covering (unless exempt) and sanitise their hands on arrival. There was a limit to the number of voters allowed into the station at any one time. Voters could also bring their own pencil/pen to mark their ballot papers if they wish individual pencils were available for those who didn't bring their own.

Here is a video about voting at this election.

The Cotswolds Constituency covers the entire Cotswold District together with three Stroud District Council wards (Kingswood, Minchinhampton, Wotton-under-Edge). The overall Parliamentary electorate is currently around 77,500. The last Parliamentary Election was held on 6th May 2010, when the electorate then was 76,729 and turnout was 71.65%.

The elections to Cotswold District Council on May 7th 2015 were the first to be conducted in line with the revised arrangements and boundaries introduced as a result of a recent electoral review carried out by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England. Overall, the number of councillors has been reduced from 44 to 34, with 30 single-member wards and 2 two-member wards (Campden & Vale in the north of the District; and Lechlade, Kempsford & Fairford South in the south-east corner of the District). All 34 seats were up for election.
