Ways to vote

Voting at a polling station

Voting at a polling station

 

Normal polling hours are 7am until 10pm.

We send a poll card to all qualified electors before each election. This tells you when, where and how to vote. It also gives you enough time to change your details or apply for a postal or proxy vote.

On the day of the election, you go along to the polling station shown on the card, give your address and name, and are given a ballot paper. There is lots of information in the polling station to help you, and our staff are happy to give you more help. You do not need your poll card to vote, but you do have to be a registered elector.

You mark your vote in secret on the ballot paper in a cubicle and place it in the sealed ballot box. The ballot boxes are only opened after the polling stations have closed and they are taken to a central counting place. No one knows how you voted.
