Poll cards are sent out in advance of poll day (although you do not need to bring your card to cast your vote, it does however make it easier upon arrival at the polling station if you do bring it and show the card to the poll staff who will locate your record on the electoral register).
If you need to check if you are on the electoral register please contact the Electoral Services Team.
