Find your polling station ahead of the Kent County Council elections

PUBLISHED: 17:10 30 April 2013 | UPDATED: 17:14 30 April 2013

The Kent County Council local election is little more than a day away, with residents able to have their say on who controls the annual £1.6billion budget.

Turnout in the 2009 election was around 37 per cent, but fears are rising that apathy and a disengagement with politics could lead to an even lowers turnout on Thursday.

There are more than 300 services controlled by the council, including schools, roads and transport - which have a combined budget of £813million per year.
