This is the traditional way to vote in the United Kingdom
You can only vote if your name is on the 'Register of Electors'. You must be registered at least 12 working days before polling day.
Poll cards are delivered shortly before an election. You might not receive a poll card before a Parish Council election.
Each person who can vote in a household will get a poll card. It explains:
- the date of the election
- where their polling station is
- when they can vote
You don't need to take your poll card with you to vote.
