We will update when the Police and Crime Commissioner candidates are confirmed.
There are three ways people can vote in the Senedd and Police and Crime Commissioner election: by post, by appointing someone they trust to vote in their place (known as a proxy vote), or in person.
The deadline to apply for a postal vote is 5pm on April 20; the deadline for a proxy vote is 5pm on April 27.
For those who choose to vote in person, polling stations will be open on May 6. People voting in person are asked to bring their own pen or pencil, wear a face covering, clean hands when entering and leaving the station, and keep a safe distance from other voters.
Anyone with symptoms of coronavirus, or asked to self-isolate, should not go to the polling stations. There will be provisions in place to apply for an emergency proxy vote in case of medical circumstances.
