Acting returning officer for the election and Cornwall Council’s chief executive Kate Kennally said: “It’s now very important to the democratic process that those of you who are registered to vote then use that vote to have your say on the important issues that affect you.

“Across the centuries people have died fighting for their right to vote and in the UK, in the early 20th century, people were killed in their struggles to get the vote for women. By using your vote you are showing your support for people who have fought hard for democracy.”
