Log on for your election information
Residents can find out everything they need to know about East Hampshire District Council elections from a new website designed to make life easy for voters.
The website will give details of candidates in each ward, voting times and the address of each polling station location – particularly useful as many East Hampshire polling stations have been moved.
Using www.whocanIvotefor.co.uk residents can enter their postcode to see information relating to the election on Thursday 2 May.
Candidates for East Hampshire District Council (EHDC) are also being encouraged to include information about themselves and what they stand for on the site, to help residents make up their mind who to vote for.
Gill Kneller, EHDC Chief Executive, said: “One of the barriers preventing people from voting is that they don’t know enough about the candidates to make their decision.
“This website gives residents all the information they need to know about when and where to vote and gives candidates the chance to let their electorate know about their views and policies.
“We want to get as many people voting as possible in every election and if we can remove some of the barriers that might put people off then so much the better.
“Many of our polling stations have moved this year, so don’t forget to check where your polling station is before you head off to vote.”
The website might be particularly valuable in this election as many polling stations have changed, with previous ones closed down and other locations used for the first time.
Voters can check the location of their polling station by using the website www.whocanIvotefor.co.uk, by going to the council’s website www.easthants.gov.uk, by checking their polling card or by phoning the elections team on 01730 234350.

Selborne Parish Council covers the villages of Selborne, Blackmoor and Oakhanger. Selborne and surrounding countryside are famous for its association with the eighteenth-century naturalist Gilbert White. In his book 'The Natural History of Selborne', he meticulously recorded his observations on the plants, birds and animals of this lovely part of Hampshire.
Much of the parish is within the South Downs National Park and is surrounded by the most beautiful countryside, yet is easily accessible from the A3 and A31. There are some thriving rural businesses and small shops. There are plenty of walking and riding opportunities with many public paths to explore.
Selborne Parish Council works to supports its residents and businesses within the three villages. Council meetings are held monthly on the third Wednesday of each month, with occasional extra meetings as required. Planning applications are discussed within the meetings and there is an opportunity for residents to speak on planning and other issues. The twelve Councillors are supported by a part-time clerk.
