General election in July – the candidates for Wichelstowe

A General Election is happening on Thursday 4th July. A change to constituency boundaries means that East Wichel and the rest of Wichelstowe are now in different constituencies, as the former South Swindon constituency has been split.

Like in the local council elections in May, voters will need photo id to be able to vote at a polling station. Photo id is not needed for those with a postal vote. Full details of the elections across the borough are on the forthcoming elections page of Swindon Borough Council’s website.
