WYRE Forest residents will be able to vote for whom they want to be their county councillor when elections take place across the county on May 4.

Worcestershire County Council elections take place every four years and there are 57 seats up for election across the county - including nine seats in Wyre Forest.

Residents who are registered to vote will have received a poll card ahead of the elections telling them where and when to vote.

Polling stations will be open between 7am and 10pm on May 4.

Postal ballot packs have also been issued to residents who have successfully applied to vote by post.

Residents unable to vote on May 4, due to unforeseen health reasons an "emergency" proxy vote application can be made up to 5pm on polling day by contacting your local district council's election office.

Simon Mallinson, returning officer for Worcestershire County Council, said: "Worcestershire County Council spends a net budget of around £320 million each year on services that affect local residents and the local economy, from highways to libraries, public health, education and social care. 

"Our elections take place every four years, so your vote is important to help shape the county council and its services between now and 2021.

"I would encourage everyone who is registered to vote to make sure they use it on Thursday, May 4."
