Newspaper office polling station set to be only one of its kind in the country

Have your say

VOTERS can mark down their X and pick up a copy of their favourite local newspaper in May in an arrangement believed to be the first of its kind.

Hastings Borough Council has approved the use of the Hastings Observer’s office in Telford Road, St Leonards as a polling station on May 22 for the European Parliament and local elections.

It will be the second time in as many years the office has been used as one of the three polling stations for the Ashdown ward. It is believed to be the only newspaper office used for such a purpose in the UK.
