Rachel Parnell, Elections Manager for Peterborough City Council, said: “From time to time there is a need to find new polling stations when existing ones become unavailable.
“The new arrangements mean that some people will be voting at a different location to the one they have in previous elections so I would urge all voters to visit the website and find out where they will need to cast their vote in May. Voters will also be able to check their poll cards when they receive one which will state the address of their polling station.”
