Polling stations

A polling station is the building used for people to go and vote in person.

Poll card and Polling station locations

You can only vote at the polling station stated on your poll card.

If you've lost your poll card, find out where your polling station will be by entering your postcode without any spaces at the end in our ward and polling station finder.

You can see a map of your polling station location by entering your address at My Neighbourhood.

Alternatively you can call us on 0117 922 3400.

If your name is spelt incorrectly on your poll card, contact us on 0117 922 3400.

If you’ve recently been married you can still vote using your maiden name on the poll card for this election. You'll then need to register to vote with your new name.

Taking your poll card with you when you vote makes it easier and quicker for polling staff to find you on the electoral register, but it isn't essential to take it with you.

Giving information to tellers

Tellers outside polling stations work for political parties and candidates. They might ask you for some information, like your electoral number. You don't have to give them the information they ask for, but you can if you want to.

Get more information about tellers from the Electoral Commission.
