Electoral Commission cyber-attack

The Electoral Commission has been the subject of a complex cyber-attack. Find out more about it on the Electoral Commission website

Vote in person

If you are registered to vote, you will receive a poll card confirming the name and address of your polling station.

You cannot vote at another polling station.

Polling hours for all elections and referendums are from 7am to 10pm.

If you haven’t received your poll card, you can check to see if you are registered to vote using our online form and you can find your polling station using the online polling station finder.

On polling day, go to your designated polling station. This is usually a school, local hall or public building near where you live.

When you arrive, tell the staff your name and address. You don't need your poll card but it helps. 

All electors, who vote at a polling station, will be required to show an accepted form of photographic identification from Thursday 4 May 2023 before they receive a ballot paper.

You will be given a ballot paper for each poll, which will have a list of candidates and their political parties

The ballot paper will tell you how many votes you have or you can check with a member of staff.

Go to a polling booth so that you can cast your vote in secret

Put a cross next to the candidate(s) you wish to vote for, fold your ballot paper in half and put it in the ballot box

If there is anything you are unsure of please ask a member of staff at the station.
