Residents aged 18 or over on polling day can vote in these elections if they are a British, Irish, qualifying Commonwealth, or European Union citizen and have registered to vote in Cambridge.

The deadline to change party affiliation for the primary election has already passed, although voters can cast ballots in non-partisan races.
Voters who changed their party affiliation after December 31, 2017, may still vote for their candidate (s) of choice in the November General Election.
