Where do I Vote?

If you are not registered to vote by post, you will vote at your designated Polling Station, on Polling Day. You must attend during the hours of poll which are between 7:00 am and 10:00 pm.

To find out which Polling Station you will need to attend, you can download an alphabetical copy of addresses and their associated polling station from the links below:

Please note: If your address does not appear in the first list then check the other. The rural addresses list are properties that do not appear on a named street. They are in alphabetical order of house name. Please check the addresses column where listed - there are instances where sections of the same street go to a different polling place.

You can also phone the Election Office on 01224 523501 or email:

The location of your Polling Station will also be displayed on your Poll Card. You will be sent this shortly before Polling Day.
