Information for voters 

Elections for Kent County councillors are taking place on Thursday, 4 May.

In Swale, there are six electoral divisions for county council elections, which will return seven county councillors.

For more information about the election, visit the Kent County Council website, where you can also view public notices about the election.

On the same day, residents in Faversham will be asked to vote in a referendum on the Faversham Creek Neighbourhood Plan. There’s more information and links to background information, on our elections pages.

To vote in either the county council elections, or referendum, residents must be on the electoral register. This was updated in autumn last year as part of Swale council’s annual canvass to make sure the register is up to date.

If you’ve recently moved house you can register online. If you’re not sure if you’re on the register, you can call the electoral services helpline 01795 417 316

The deadline for registering to vote in time for the county elections and Faversham Creek Neighbourhood Plan referendum is midnight on Thursday, 13 April. You do not need to re-apply if you are already on the register - if you're unsure, call the helpline on 01795 417 316.  

Anyone wishing to vote by post, or who wants to alter an existing postal vote or proxy vote, needs to do so by 5pm on Tuesday, 18 April.

Applications to vote by proxy need to be made by 5pm on Tuesday, 25 April.

For more information call the helpline on 01795 417316.
