LOCAL elections are to be held on May 6, it has been confirmed.

The date is the same as that predicted for this year’s general election.

Voter registration forms can be downloaded from redbridge.gov.uk, and may also be requested by phone, email, post or in person.

From now until polling stations close, the council’s website will no longer allow comments on its forum and the mayor’s and leader’s blogs will be unavailable.
