There are three ways to vote:
At a Polling Station
Before an election you will be posted a poll card. Your poll card will tell you where your polling station is. Your local polling station is where you can vote in person. Polling stations are often at churches, community centres and schools. However they can be in all sorts of places. Polling stations are usually open from 7am to 10 pm. You will be required to show an accepted form of photographic identification from May 2023. Further information can be found here.
You will be sent a form similar to the registration form. You should fill out the postal vote application and send it to your local electoral services team. Before elections, you will receive a ballot paper in the post.
Voting by proxy means choosing someone else to vote for you. You need to fill in a new form to choose who will vote for you. This person can visit your polling station or apply for a postal vote in order to vote on your behalf
