Before an election you will be sent a poll card which will inform you of the address of your polling station. The polling card will have on your elector number, name and address, the date of the election and the hours the polling stations are open.
If anyone in your household is on the register of electors and has not received a poll card please contact us immediately.
On election day you can take the card with you to the polling station, this will assist the staff there to find your details on the register. If you have mislaid your polling card you can still vote as long as your name is on the register of electors.
When the Presiding Officer has found your details they will give you a separate ballot paper for each election. At this election you may have up to three ballot papers, as there are Parliamentary, Local and Parish Elections taking place - but not in all areas.
You then mark your ballot paper(s) in secret in the polling booth. Put a cross (X) next to the person you wish to vote for.
Once you have put your mark on the paper you should fold it in half and place it in the ballot box.
