We are very sorry for any confusion caused this morning with regard to emails received about the European Parliament Elections due to be held on Thursday 23 May.
We quickly discovered that some residents had received the wrong information about their polling station, which we have immediately corrected.
We sent this email to quickly give residents information because of the short notice of these elections. This was a human error and we apologise for any confusion or concern this has caused.
We would like to reassure residents that:
• Your polling card will be correct when it arrives in the post.
• Residents will not be able to vote twice because they will not appear on the register in the incorrect polling station.
We are launching an internal investigation into how this happened, so it can be prevented from happening again.
