On the day, where do I go to vote?

You will receive a polling card before the election telling you where to vote. It will be a local polling station, set up in places such as school halls or churches. You can only vote at the polling station location on your card.

And how do I vote?

When you arrive at the polling station, give your name and address to the staff members inside. They will give you a ballot paper to select your candidate on. Fold the ballot paper in half and put it in the ballot box after making your choice. 

Do I need my polling card to vote?

The polling card is for your information only – you do not need to take it to the polling station and you can still vote if you have misplaced it. 

When are the polling stations open and when do they close?

Polling booths will be open between 7am and 10pm on election day – 12 December. Counting of votes will begin when the polls close. 

What if I can’t get to a polling station on the day?

If medical reasons or your occupation, service or employment means that you cannot go to the polling station, you can apply to vote by emergency proxy up until 5pm on polling day.

If you already know that you will not be able to make it to your polling station on 12 December,
