What happens in a polling station?

  1. When you arrive, you’ll need to speak to the election staff at the desk.  Tell them your name and address.  
  2. They will mark the register to show you have voted and give you the ballot paper(s) you are entitled to.
  3. You will need to go to one of the empty polling booths and mark a cross (X) in the box on the right hand side of the ballot paper(s), opposite the name of each candidate you are voting for.  Make sure you put no other mark or writing on the ballot paper, or your vote may not be counted.  Fold the ballot paper(s) to keep your vote secret. 
  4. Go back to the desk and show the election staff the numbering on the back of the ballot paper, before you put the ballot paper(s) in the ballot box and leave the polling station.
