General Election 2017: Chester turn out in force at polling stations

CHESTER'S polling stations have been busy today with people wanting to make their voice heard in the General Election.

Voters were queuing outside the polling station in Morrison's supermarket car park first thing this morning to cast their vote in the City of Chester constituency.

Voters have a choice of just three candidates in the City of Chester: Conservative Will Gallagher, Labour's Chris Matheson who has been the constituency's MP for the last two years; and Lizzie Jewkes of the Liberal Democrats.

Polling stations throughout the city, including St Theresa's Parish Centre in Blacon and St Mary's Centre and The Deaf Centre in the city, had a steady stream of people during the first part of the day.

Chester must have some of the cosiest polling stations, such as The Bungalow at Milton Green Ambulance Station where the process takes place in a single small room.

But don't worry, despite what photograph taken by Leader photographer Simon Warburton at Piper's Ash this morning suggests, no polling stations were housed in portable toilets.
