Polling stations are open from 7am to 10pm on polling day, and are usually public buildings like schools or local halls.

You can take your polling card with you to show who you are, but you don’t have to.

You’ll be given a ballot paper containing a list of the people, parties or other options you can vote for.


You can get more information on voting from the central government website.
