        How to vote

        Poll Cards

        Poll cards are delivered to all eligible electors. This card is for information only. Don’t worry if you lose it or forget it – you can still vote without it as long as your name is on the electoral register. You can look up your address to find out where your polling station is on our interactive map.

        Voting at a polling station

        There will be at least two members of staff in the polling station you’ll need to vote in. Some polling stations may have changed, please check your poll card carefully.

        You’ll be asked for your name and address, and when your details have been verified you will be given a ballot paper. A mark will be made against your name on the list to show that you have voted. You will not be able to vote again in the same election.

        There will be a notice in the polling booth indicating how many candidates you may vote for. If you vote for more candidates than you are entitled to your vote will not be counted.

        If you make a mistake, ask a staff member for a replacement ballot paper.

        After casting your vote, place your marked ballot paper in the ballot box, which will be situated near to staff.

        Details of the results will be posted online and at our council offices.

        We take proactive steps to ensure that polling stations don’t disadvantage disabled people. You can also download an easy-read guide to voting.
