Voters set to go to the polls across Lincolnshire and Rutland for the 2024 General Election





Voters are heading to the polls today (Thursday) — as the race to pick the area’s next set of MPs now rests in the hands of the public.

Electors across Lincolnshire and Rutland will have a chance to make their voice heard and pick the people they want to represent them in Parliament for the coming years.

The Conservative Party is defending a strong position in this General Election — having held all of Lincolnshire seats after the 2019 election, some of which are seen as being among the ‘safest’ held by the Tories in the whole country.
