Safety precautions at polling stations for 6 May 2021

This year, for the safety of voters and polling officials the voting experience will be a little different:

  • You will need to wear a face covering
  • There may be a one way system in your station
  • You may experience a small queue
  • You may want to bring your own pen or pencil to mark your ballot paper - though the usual pencil will be provided if you don't
  • If you do not already have one, and have any concerns or problem with attending in person, apply for a postal vote NOW
