Polling station locations

Poll cards - the document sent to all registered voters shortly before an election which provide information including the date of the election and the location and opening times of the polling station – have been issued to everyone who was included in the electoral role by 17 April.

If you completed your application after Wednesday 8 April, your poll card is due to be posted on Friday 1 May. If you have changed your voting arrangement since you received your poll card, you will not be issued with an updated poll card
