How to vote

Most people vote at a polling station. Your polling station will usually be your local school or community centre. The polling stations will be open 7am to 10pm on polling day.

You don't need to bring any identification - you don't even need your poll card. You'll simply be asked your name and address when you arrive.

What to do at the polling station

You're electing three councillors in your ward. On your ballot paper you can vote up to three times by putting a cross (X) by the candidates of your choice.

You can only vote for each candidate once, multiple crosses for the same candidate will only count as one vote. Don't make any other mark on the ballot paper or your vote may not be counted.

If you can't make it to the polling station

If you aren't able to vote in person then you can still apply for a proxy vote to have someone vote on your behalf. The deadline for applying is 5pm on Wednesday 25 April 2018.
