Polling stations

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Everyone who is entitled to vote will receive a poll card about 2 weeks before election day. This poll card will give you details of your polling station. If you do not receive your card or have mislaid it and are unsure of where to go to vote, please contact our Electoral Services Office.

Polling stations open from 7am-10pm on polling day.​

  2. Take your ballot paper to a voting booth.
  3. Read the instructions in the booth and mark your ballot paper.
  4. When you have marked your ballot paper, fold it so that nobody can see how you have voted.
