The election nominations are in!

Details of the candidates nominated for the general and local elections in May have been published today.

A 'Statement of Persons Nominated' for each election on Thursday, 7 May is on Hertsmere Council website and available in reception at our Civic Offices in Borehamwood.

As well as the parliamentary election, 39 councillors will be elected for the borough council and elections will also take place for Elstree & Borehamwood Town Council and Aldenham, Shenley and South Mimms parish councils. Ridge Parish Council is uncontested.

To have your say on who gets elected you must be registered to vote. The deadline for registering is Monday, 20 April. If you have not yet registered to vote, or if you have moved house recently, you will need to register in order to be able to vote.

To register to vote, please visit our website

Voting in person at a polling station

If you want to vote in person and are registered, a poll card has been sent to you over the past few days. If you have not received a poll card please contact us. The card tells you where you should vote – you can only vote at your allocated polling station. It is helpful if you take your poll card with you but you don't have to. The deadline to apply to vote in this way is Monday, 20 April

Voting by post

If you are registered for a postal vote you will be sent your ballot paper before the election and you will need to post it back to us. To vote by post you need to apply and forms have to be completed and returned by 5pm on Tuesday, 21 April.

Voting by proxy

Proxy voting means another person can vote on your behalf. To have a proxy vote forms have to be completed and returned to us by 5pm on 28 April. You can have someone vote on your behalf if:
• you will be away on holiday
• you have to work away from home
• you are ill or in hospital. For more information and to apply online visit our website
