Ways to vote

Vote in person

Most people choose to go to a polling station to vote in person.

It is now too late to register to vote in the May 2022 elections. The deadline was 11:59pm on Thursday 14 April. 

About a month before election day you will get a poll card in the post. This will tell you what the election is for and where your polling station is.

When you go to the polling station you will be asked to confirm your name and address. The staff in the station will give you a ballot paper and you can cast your vote in secret.

If you take your poll card with you it will make the process a bit quicker but don’t worry if you forget it, you will still be able to vote.
