A poll card is an official document that must, by law, be sent to every eligible elector whose name appears in the Register of Electors. The poll card advises electors of the date, time and hours of polling day and the location of their polling station. On the reverse of the poll card are instructions on what to do once inside the polling station.
You do not need to take the poll card with you in order to vote - it helps if you do but you can vote without it, provided your name appears on the polling register for the particular election. Please note, however, that if you have a postal or postal proxy voting arrangement set up, you will not be able to vote at a polling station.
If you have a postal or postal proxy vote you will receive a postal poll card. This will not refer you to a polling station as you will be voting by post. It will notify you of the date to expect receipt of your postal vote pack which you will need to complete and return to us by the date stated in order to vote by post.
