Voting at a polling station

Voting takes place in polling stations although you can choose to vote by post or appoint someone else to vote for you instead.

If you choose to vote at a polling station, you have to vote at the polling station that is shown on your poll card, you will not be able to vote in any other polling station.  A poll card is sent to each elector a few weeks before the election. 

All polling stations are open from 7am until 10pm on election day.  All polling stations have wheelchair access and at least one booth that is wider with a lower shelf to accommodate the needs a people with disabilities. In addition, there are large print ballot papers and tactile devices for people with visual problems.
