On May 5 Wales will go to the polls for the Welsh Assembly election and for the referendum on changing how Mps are elected to the UK Parliament.
Caerphilly County Borough covers three constituencies – Merthyr Tydfil and Rhymney, Caerphilly and Islwyn.
At the polling booth, voters will get three ballot papers. One to vote for their constituency Assembly Member, one to vote for their Regional Assembly Members, in this instance South Wales East, and another for the referendum on voting reform in the UK Parliament.
The referendum will ask whether to ditch the first-past-the-post system for electing MPs in favour of the Alternative Vote system. The referendum will not change the way Assembly Members are chosen in Wales.
