POLISH nationals living in Welwyn Hatfield will be able to vote in their country’s upcoming parliamentary elections.

The nation votes on Sunday, with current Prime Minister Donald Tusk’s Civic Platform party marginally ahead of the conservative Law and Justice party in recent polls.

And Polish migrants who want to have their say in who runs their country can do so, by going to Hatfield Fire Station in Wellfield Road on October 9.

It is the only polling station for the elections in Hertfordshire, and just one of two throughout the East of England, alongside Cambridge.

The station will be open from 7am until 9pm for residents to cast their vote.

Those eligible to vote have until tomorrow (October 6) to register at

Michal Siewniak, who organised the polling station in Hatfield, said: “Hatfield is in the heart of the county, and Hatfield Fire Station is well known to many members of the community.

“I feel this is a superb promotion for the town, borough and for the county.

“It is an opportunity to engage with those who are living and working here and I hope it will bring a lot of fantastic outcomes.”
