If you are registered to vote, a polling card should be posted to you approximately 2 weeks before Polling Day and tells you when and where to vote. What to do if you didn't receive or have lost your polling card.
If you have recently applied to go on the supplement register your polling card will be posted nearer Polling Day.
The Polling Card simply tells you when and where to vote. You do not need it to vote.
