Elections - polling stations

A polling station is where you go to cast your vote during an election. Polling stations are often located in schools, churches, community centres and council buildings.

If you do not wish to vote at your allotted polling station you can apply to vote by post or vote by proxy (appoint someone to vote for you).

What time are polling stations open?

Polling hours are between 7am and 10pm. These times are set in legislation and no voting can take place in a polling station outside of these hours.

Review of polling districts and places

The Electoral Administration Act 2006 requires the council to undertake a review of its polling districts. The last review was completed in 2014.

See the review of polling districts and places page for more information.
