How to cast your vote
Voting at a polling station
Poll cards will be sent out in advance of the election.
Each member of your household who is registered, and can vote in that particular election, should also receive a poll card which states:
- the date of the election
- the hours of poll
- where your polling station is located and a map showing this.
Contact us if haven't received a poll card before an election, but think you're registered to vote.
You do not need to take the poll card with you to be able to vote.
Casting your vote
The hours of poll for all elections is 7am to 10pm.
When you get to the polling station
When you get to your designated polling station, the poll clerk will ask you to confirm your name and address and will issue you a ballot paper.
Filling in your ballot paper
Take the ballot paper to the voting booth and be sure to read the guidance for voters regarding how to mark your ballot.
Once you have finished marking your ballot paper, fold and put in the ballot box.
