Polling stations for the 2021 local elections
Polling stations will be Covid secure
Covid-19 measures at polling stations may include:
- Separate entrances and exits where possible
- Altered layouts to allow for social distancing when waiting to vote and when completing a ballot paper, but still ensuring electors can cast their vote in secret
- Polling station staff wearing PPE
- Voters asked to wear face covering where possible and use hand sanitiser when they enter the polling station
- Voters encouraged to bring their own pen or pencil
- Polling booths regularly sanitised.
These measures may mean you have to wait for longer than usual to be able to cast your vote.
Busy times in polling stations often include:
- 7am to 9.30am
- 3.30pm to 4.30pm
- 6pm to 8pm
Trying to avoid these peak times may mean voters have to wait for a shorter period of time. Anyone queuing to vote at a polling station by 10pm will still be able to vote.
The following polling stations have moved for availability/improved disabled access/the additional requirements needed to hold an election during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Voters should check their poll card for the location details of their polling station.
Where possible, posters will be displayed at a previous venue directing people to the correct location.
