Update on alternative polling stations for May elections

by Jonathan Kearney

A number of alternative venues across Knowsley will continue to be used as polling stations at the forthcoming May elections.

As with last year’s elections that took place in Knowsley, schools will not be used as polling stations for the forthcoming local elections on Thursday 5 May.

This is to avoid any further disruption to children’s education in the borough.

A number of polling station venues were also changed for last year’s elections to ensure they could accommodate COVID-secure measures.

The Council has agreed the following alternative venues will be used for the May elections:
