Polling stations for local elections in Northern Ireland open


The olling stations will open later when voting begins in Northern Ireland’s local elections.

Voters will elect 462 councilors across Northern Ireland’s 11 councils.

The polling stations are open on Thursday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

It is the first electoral test for the parties since last year’s general election and comes amid the ongoing stalemate in Stormont as power-sharing institutions are not operating as part of a DUP protest against post-Brexit trade deals.

Due to the king’s coronation on May 6, the election was postponed by two weeks.

It was a low-key election campaign, largely overshadowed by US President Joe Biden’s visit to Northern Ireland, commemorations of the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement and the coronation.
