A poll card is only sent out to inform electors that there is going to be an election. It will tell you:
- the date of the election
- the ward or parish or constituency you are in
- your polling station
I have lost my poll card, can you send me another one?
No - the poll card is only sent out to inform electors that there is going to be an election. You don't need it to be able to vote. You should just go along to your polling station on election day and give your name and address. You will then be given a ballot paper. If you don’t know where your polling station is, please email electoral information or phone the Elections office on 0300 123 5016
I have received a poll card but I'm supposed to get a postal vote. Is this correct?
All postal voters receive a postal poll card. Check whether you have actually received a postal poll card which will be pink. If the card is white and you think you should have received a postal vote, please email electoral information or phone the Elections office on 0300 123 5016.
I have not received a poll card - does this mean I cannot vote at the election?
British, Irish and Commonwealth electors can vote at the the Borough and parish elections. Electors who are from a European Union country other than Britain or Ireland can also vote in this election. Overseas electors cannot vote at the Borough and parish elections election.
