Your vote is safe – what to expect on polling day
Local elections are taking place this Thursday (6 May).
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed a lot of things over the last year, but it won’t stop you from being able to vote. If you want to vote in person at a polling station on Thursday, measures will be in place to ensure that you can cast your vote safely, including extra cleaning and social distancing.
There will be a few extra things you’ll need to remember to keep yourself and others safe at the polling station:
Wear a face covering.
Hand sanitise before and after you vote.
Bring your own pencil (if you do forget, there will be clean ones available).
Keep a safe social distance from people not in your household or support bubble.
You can find out more about voting, including what to expect on polling day, on our website.
