    A Parliamentary General Election will be held on Thursday 12 December 2019.

    There are three Parliamentary Constituencies in Sefton, Bootle, Sefton Central and Southport.

    Voters will be asked to elect one of the candidates to serve as a Member of Parliament for each Constituency.

    Every person who is registered to vote at the election as of the 31 October 2019 will receive an official poll card. The poll card will state the date and time of the election and the polling station the registered elector must vote at, or if the elector has previously asked to vote by post, when they should expect to receive their postal vote.

    You can vote by post or by proxy, but it may be prudent to appoint a proxy in the UK to vote on your behalf.

    If you are at home, but would like to vote from your University address, then you should contact the local authority where you are registered with and arrange for a postal vote.
    When completing the application, you can request that the postal pack is delivered to your home address. You can do this up to 5pm on Tuesday 26 November 2019.

    [COLOR=#01527A !important]5. Who am I voting for?
    When voting in this election you will vote to elect a Candidate to become a Member of Parliament for the area in which you live.
    The ballot paper will contain the names of candidates and the political party they represent or they may be an Independent candidate.
    The ballot paper will not have the names of Jeremy Corbyn, Boris Johnson or any other leader of a political party on it.

    [COLOR=#01527A !important]6. Do I need to take anything with me to vote?
    Official poll cards are issued to every person registered to vote at the election.
    Poll cards are issued for information purposes. We do not re-issue poll cards.
    Electors can take them to the polling station and this will assist the staff, but it is not necessary to do so.

    [COLOR=#01527A !important]7. How do I cast my vote?
    To vote in this election, every elector will be able to vote once by marking an X against the name of the candidate they wish to vote for.
    In polling stations, a specially designed pencil is provided. You cannot rub the pencil mark out, but if a mistake is made then election rules allow the vote to be clearly crossed out and then vote for the correct candidate.
    Voters may use a pen or other writing implement if they prefer.
