Polling Day for the National Assembly for Wales elections and the referendum for the voting system for the UK Parliamentary election is on Thursday, 5th May.
Should the elections be contested, voters in Pembrokeshire will be faced with two election ballot papers. There will also be a third ballot paper for the Alternative Voting referendum.
One election ballot paper will be for their constituency - either Preseli Pembrokeshire or Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire. Another election ballot paper will be for the Mid and West Wales Electoral Region.
The third paper will be for the UK referendum on the voting system for the UK Parliamentary elections.
The constituency ballot paper in Preseli Pembrokeshire will be lilac in colour while in the Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire constituency it will be salmon coloured.
Voters are asked to identify their chosen candidate from the list of names by the use of a cross in the appropriate box on the ballot paper.
The second ballot paper - which is white - will decide which four candidates are elected to the Assembly from the regional list. Again, electors will be asked to select a political party or individual candidate with the use of a cross.
While candidates from the constituencies will be elected on a ‘first past the post' basis - as in a United Kingdom Parliamentary Election - those on the Regional List will be elected by proportional representation.
The third ballot paper - which is light grey - will decide on whether the voting system for the UK Parliamentary election is to be adopted for returning Members to the UK Parliament in Westminster.
This could mean replacing the traditional ‘first past the post' system.
Polling stations will open at 7 am and close at 10 pm and the counts will be at Withybush, Haverfordwest.
Nominations for candidates for both types of elections - constituency and regional - open on 28th March and close at 12 noon on 4th April.
Law dictates that only those on the Electoral Register are eligible to vote.
The deadline for ensuring you are included on the Register is Wednesday, 14th April, which is also the deadline to apply for a postal vote.
To apply for the appropriate form, ring the Electoral Services helpline on 01437 775844 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
