Voting and Covid-19 Safety Measures
Polling stations will look a little different this year as a range of measures are being put in place to help keep us all safe. These include:
- Hand sanitising stations. You will be required to use hand sanitiser as you enter the polling station.
- You must wear a face covering (unless you are subject to an exemption).
- Some Polling stations will be operating one way systems where possible.
- Signage and 2-metre markings will direct you to follow a one-way system (where possible) to the ballot paper issuing desk and beyond.
- Polling stations will be adequately staffed. All staff will be wearing masks and visors, and they will be on duty to assist you and ensure that contact surfaces are regularly cleaned throughout the day.
- We would recommend that you bring your own pen or pencil to mark your ballot paper.
- We ask that you take your poll card (and any disposable mask/rubbish) home with you to dispose safely and securely.
- Social distancing requirements will mean that the capacity for each polling station will be reduced, so we would advise that you are prepared to queue outside whilst you wait to vote. Please make sure you come prepared for any adverse weather whilst you wait! Try to avoid peak times if you can, like lunchtime and after the school run.
If you do not wish to vote at a polling station in May, you can vote by post or by proxy. Information about, and the deadlines for submitting an application to vote by post or proxy, may be found at the bottom of this page.
