STEP 2: POLLING CARDS
If you are registered to vote you will get sent a POLLING CARD whenever an election is being held.

This tells you when the election will be and where you need to go to vote. The place where you vote is called a POLLING STATION.
You don’t have to take the polling card with you when you vote; it is just to give you information.
Keep it safe so you remember when the day of the election is and where your polling station is.
If you are not able to go to the polling station in person on election day you can apply to vote by post.
This funny advert is supposed to show that everyone has the time to visit a polling station!:
