Although the polling station addresses are unchanged from the local elections held earlier this month, the locations of the polling booths within some buildings are different. The polling stations affected are;

  • Acorn Hall, Lillington Nursery & Primary School, Grange Road Entrance (off Pound Lane) CV32 7AG
  • Trinity Catholic School (The Caretakers Bungalow), Guys Cliffe Avenue, CV32 6NB

The Polling Staff on duty from 7am to 10pm on 23 May, will be on hand to assist those voting in these locations.

Kenilworth

The three polling stations that were in the Air Cadets Building at Kenilworth School have moved to temporary buildings on the car park of:

  • The Tiltyard Pub, Leyes Lane, Kenilworth, CV8 2DE

We will be placing signage at the school on the day to direct people to the new location.
