Voting at a polling station

How to vote at a polling station

You have to vote at the polling station allocated to your polling district and will be shown on the poll card we send you.

Polling stations are open from 7am to 10pm on election day and will be sent to each elector a few weeks before the election.

  • On polling day, go to your polling station.
  • When you arrive, tell the staff your name and address. You do not need to bring your polling card with you but it might save time if you do.
  • You will be given a ballot paper which will have a list of candidates on it.
  • The ballot paper will tell you how many votes you have or you can check with a member of staff. Go to a polling booth so your vote is secret.
  • Put an x next to candidate(s) you wish to vote for, fold your ballot paper in half and put it in the ballot box.
