Where to vote

Find your polling place

Your polling place will be noted on your Poll Card, or you can check it online. We are currently finalising our webpage with the online tool to help you find out which polling place to use for the Council elections on 4 May 2017. This should be available from the beginning of March. You can however download your ward map below which will show you your polling place for the Council Elections on 4 May 2017. We apologise for any inconvenience. 

You should go to your polling place to vote between 7am and 10pm on polling day.

The polling districts and polling places can change between elections so please make sure you check as close to polling day as possible. The lists below are from the EU Referendum on 23 June 2016.

You can then click on ‘show on map’ and a new map opens showing the location.  Alternatively you can use the ‘drag the pin’ tool to pinpoint your address and then click on ‘find polling station’.

If you cannot use the online tools, you can download the full list below.

Poll card

If you were registered to vote and are eligible to vote, you should receive a Poll Card before polling day..

Your card tells you

  • when to vote (between 7am and 10pm on polling day)
  • where to vote (the polling place you have to vote at)

The poll card is for your information. You don't need it to vote but it is very helpful if you bring it along.

If you don't receive a poll card, you can check that you are registered and eligible to vote by contacting the Electoral Registration Office on
