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.
