Voters who are not registered to vote are being urged to do so as the countdown begins to Manchester City Council local elections, on Thursday May 3.
New ward boundaries will come into effect at the elections, following an electoral review by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England. As a result, electors will have the opportunity to vote for three candidates in each of the five Wythenshawe wards – Woodhouse Park, Sharston, Baguley, Brooklands and Northenden.
Anyone who is registered to vote can also choose to vote by post, or by proxy. Applications for a postal vote must be received by 5pm on Wednesday 18 April 2018. The deadline for the receipt of proxy vote applications is 5pm on Wednesday 25 April 2018.
The Liberal Democrats have lost their last seat in Wythenshawe as the party was wiped out in Manchester.
Mary Di Mauro was beaten in Northenden by Labour’s Sarah Russell.
And Labour swept the board across the city, taking all nine of the last remaining Lib Dem seats. It means that Manchester is now virtually a one party city.
Labour has 95 of the 96 council seats. The only opposition is an independent Labour councillor.
The Euro sceptic UKIP failed to capitalise on their recent challenge in the Wythenshawe by-election and take a seat, but finished second in a number of wards, including Baguley, Brooklands, Woodhouse Park and Sharston.
