Crosspool residents will be casting their votes today to choose a new local councillor for the Crookes ward and vote in the European election.
The six Crookes ward candidates standing in the local election are:
- John Clapham – UKIP
- Nick Hall – Trade Unionists and Socialists Against Cuts
- John Hesketh – Independent
- Shaffaq Mohammed – Liberal Democrat
- Anne Murphy – Labour
- Jonathan Peters – Green Party
European Elections are also taking place today. For these, you vote for a political party to represent your views in the European Parliament, not an individual candidate.
So on the voting slip you’ll choose one ward candidate and one European political party.
The local election results are expected late on Friday morning, with the European Election results due to be announced on Sunday at 10pm.
