Lost your polling card? No problem.
What you do need to know is where your polling station is, which is determined by your postcode.
Just enter your postcode into The Electoral Commission search facility and it will show you the full address of your polling station and a handy map. If you have friends who live on the same road or just round the corner, please note that their polling station may be different to yours – this is perfectly normal. All polling stations are open from 7am to 10pm.
There may be people asking to see your polling card outside the polling station – these people are called ‘tellers’ and they represent the different political parties. It is their role to find out who has come to vote, so they don’t need to keep reminding you later in the day. They must not ask you who you’re voting for before you go in to the polling station, but they might ask you afterwards. You don’t have to talk to them if you don’t want to.
If you have got any questions about the voting process, especially if you are a first time voter, please just ask.
