All Postal Vote for Sheffield’s
New Ward Boundaries
Sheffield’s electoral ward boundaries
change in June. This means that every seat on the City Council
will be up for election next month. There will also be elections
for the European Parliament at the same time.
However, these changes will not affect MPs until
the next general election. In the meantime your local MPs
Richard Caborn (Central) and David Blunkett (Brightside) will
continue to represent the same areas they do at present.
The elections will be an all-postal vote. Voting
forms will be sent out at the end of May to everyone on the
electoral role. These will need to be returned by the close
of polling on the 10th June.
The new boundaries set by the Electoral Commission
will mean changes to most wards in the city with some having
completely new names. The Commission has also reduced the
number of seats on the Council from 87 to 84 which means that
there will be 28 wards, one fewer than before.
You can see copies of detailed maps showing
the new wards at Electoral Services Reception at the Town
Hall or on the Council’s website at:
In this area the Burngreave ward will now be
extended to include Shirecliffe and all of Fir Vale (including
Wensley, Page Hall and the Northern General). However it will
no longer include Attercliffe or the lower Don Valley, which
will go into the Darnall ward, or the Nursery Street/Wicker
area, which will go into Central ward.
If you would like to know more about these elections
or the new ward boundaries please call the Council’s
Electoral Services on 273 4093.
Lookout for your voting form and don’t
forget to return your vote.
