Residents living in the Sewell area of north Norwich will go to the polls this Thursday in elections which had been postponed from the original May 6 date.
Voters will take to the polls on 17 June to elect two councillors - a councillor for Norwich City Council and a councillor for Norfolk County Council.
There will be four polling stations open from 7am until 10pm in Sewell. The count will take place that evening with results expected around midnight.
Returning officer for Norwich City Council, Stephen Evans, said: 'As with our elections back in May, the council have been preparing to ensure that Sewell residents can take part safely and confidently to elect a councillor for the city and county council.
'Those wanting to vote in person are urged to take their own pen or pencil to mark their ballot papers and will be asked to wear face coverings when arriving at their polling station.'
Poll cards will state where people should go to vote, with polling stations at Rosebery Road Methodist Church, Christ Church Centre, Silver Road Community Centre and St Mary Magdalene Church.
Postal voters who have not yet returned their postal vote pack can hand it in to any polling station in Sewell on Thursday.
If a voter normally votes at a polling station but cannot go for a work or medical reason, they may be able to apply for emergency proxy. The deadline is 5pm on polling day. Residents should contact us for an application.
