Elections 2021 - Thursday 6 May

On Thursday 6 May 2021 electors will be able to go to the polls and have their say on who represents them as the West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) and at Worcestershire County Council. In addition a number of Wards in Redditch Borough delayed from 2020 will have elections in May.

The elections will take place at a time when Covid-19 continues to present risks to public health. Depending on the infection rate, measures taken to control the spread of the virus may change as we approach May. This means we cannot currently answer all the questions you may have about how the election will be run. However, we are working hard with Worcestershire County Council, the Electoral Commission, the wider electoral community and public health authorities to help ensure you can stay safe when casting your vote in May.

The deadline to apply for a proxy vote at these elections is 5pm on 27 April 2021.

As information becomes available we will update this page and links to the different bodies involved in these elections.

The delivery plan regarding voting set out by Government can be found here.
