The list of candidates standing for election to Portsmouth City Council will be published next week.

The list will be available on our election page on Wednesday 6 April by 4pm.

The elections, on 5 May, will see a third of the council’s seats up for grabs – one in each of the city’s 14 wards.

The council is reminding people that to vote in the elections, they need to be registered. Anyone not registered to vote can apply now. The deadline for registering to vote at these elections is Thursday 14 April.

Anyone who will be 18 or older on 5 May can register to vote.

Poll cards are being sent out now, telling residents which polling station they can attend to cast their vote.

Instead of going to a polling station, residents can vote by post, or nominate someone to vote on their behalf (called a proxy vote).

For postal votes, the council must receive an application by 5pm on Tuesday 19 April.

For proxy votes, the deadline for applications is 5pm on Tuesday 26 April.
