With the UK rolling out vaccines on an unprecedented scale, local elections are set to go ahead on 6 May 2021 in English local councils. 6 May will also see elections for 13 directly elected mayors in England, as well as for 40 police & crime commissioners in England & Wales. Ability is standing with local councils, offering a full range of solutions to set up safe, distanced and Covid-secure polling stations.
6 May 2021 will see thousands of voters take to the polling stations. However, the risk of coronavirus remains high, and local authorities must take a number of measures to protect election staff, volunteers and the general public. This is why the government has pledged an extra £31 million for protective screens, barriers and hygiene equipment in a bid to make the election as safe as possible.
