How to Vote on Thursday the 4th of July

Polling stations are open between 7am and 10pm.

1/ Remember your photo ID

  • You will only need to show one form of photo ID
  • It needs to be the original version, and not a photocopy or a digital version
  • It does not have to be in date
  • There are many accepted types; international, drivers, travel, proof of age and more.
  • Head to the official electoral commission site here

2/ Find your polling station

3/ Ask for help if you need it

  • Our team has made themselves available to support you over the phone. You can call us on 01273 766670

At the polling station:

  • If you’re not sure what to do, or need any help, you can ask the staff at the polling station
  • You can also bring someone with you. Anyone over the age of 18 can come with you to help you cast your vote. They don’t need to be eligible to vote in that election
  • There are a number of things at the polling station to help you cast your vote, including a large print sample ballot paper, and a tactile voting device to help if you have a visual impairment
  • If you want to, you can take your phone into the polling booth to use magnifier or text-to-speech apps, or the phone torch to improve lighting. When using your phone, don’t take any photos inside the polling station


  • You do not need to bring your polling card or any letter with you to vote
  • Forgot to post your ballot? Bring this with you to your polling station, find a staff member and ask them for help
