How to vote

A polling card is sent to each registered voter prior to the election.

The polling card contains details of the polling station where the recipient is entitled to vote (the location of all polling stations can also be found on this map).

Note that you do not need to bring your polling card with you to the polling station; in fact, you do not need to bring any identification with you at all (Britain is one of the only countries in the world where this is the case).

You are simply required to provide the polling station staff with your name and address to be given a ballot paper.

Real news stories don't come cheap.

The Hackney Citizen is the borough’s only independent newspaper, and is now in its tenth year.

Our hard-hitting journalism has uncovered fire safety failures in tower blocks, revealed plans to criminalise rough sleepers, exposed dodgy letting agents and reported on many other issues of public concern.

We’ve always been totally free in print and online, but advertising revenues are falling.

That’s why we’re asking for your help.

Hackney Citizen’s high quality journalism is produced by a small team on a shoestring budget, so we’re asking you to make a monthly contribution to fund our work, enabling the paper to survive and thrive.
