Information for voters

Key dates, documents and deadlines for Thursday 3 May 2018

On Thursday 3 May 2018 (7am-10pm),  voters across the Borough will go to the polls to choose their Councillors for Eastleigh Borough Council and the parishes of Chandler's Ford and Allbrook & North Boyatt.

Due to an extensive ward boundary review in 2017, by the Boundary Commission for England, the number of Borough wards will reduce from 19 to 14 and the number of Councillors will change from 44 to 39.  This will mean that all 39 new seats will be up for election on Thursday 3 May. Use our interactive map below to view polling station locations and the current and new polling districts and wards.

Poll cards will be issued to every registered, eligible, elector between 27 March – 8 April 2018. Please check the details on your poll card which will tell you the area you will be voting for and the location of your polling station.
