POLL cards for the forthcoming Somerset West and Taunton council, and parish council elections, on May 2nd are landing on doormats throughout the area.
Residents in Taunton Deane and West Somerset are being advised to check their poll card to make sure that they know which polling station they need to use on polling day.
