A number of polling stations have been relocated ahead of local elections in May.

On May 6, residents across Hertsmere will vote to elect their county councillor and police and crime commissioner for Hertfordshire.

For those living in the Kenilworth ward in Borehamwood, there will also be a by-election to elect a new borough councillor following the death of Conservative councillor Cynthia Barker last year.

In Hertsmere, there are around 50 locations around the borough used as a polling station, including halls, schools, and community centres.

There are nine polling stations which have moved for the May elections and Hertsmere Borough Council has set up a poll station location finder for residents to find their nearest polling station.

The nine polling station changes are


  • Borehamwood and Elstree Synagogue, Croxdale Road (replaces St Michaels and All Angels)
  • St Michaels and All Angels Church Hall, Brook Road (replaces Cowley Hill School)
  • The Venue Leisure Centre, Elstree Way (replaces The British Legion)
  • Elstree Screen Arts Academy, Studio Way (replaces the Toby Carvery)
  • Shenley Methodist Church, London Road (replaces Shenley Village Hall)


  • Bushey Grove Leisure Centre, Aldenham Road (replaces Bushey Manor School)
  • Bushey Rangers Clubhouse, The Moatfield, Bournehall Lane (replaces Bournehall Primary School)
  • Bushey Community Centre, High Street (replaces Bushey Museum)
  • St Margaret's Sports Centre, Merry Hill Road (replaces Merryhill Infant School)

Sam Langford, electoral services manager for Hertsmere Borough Council, said: "It is essential residents know where and how to vote, so this online tool is a great resource for people who may have misplaced their poll card or are unsure where they need to go.

"With changes to a number of polling stations due to coronavirus social distancing measures and government guidelines, it's essential our residents know where their poll station is and how to ensure they can vote safely. The polling station finder on our website is quick and easy to use."

Votes can also be cast by proxy or by post.
