The Poll

The local authority may decide whether or not to issue polling information cards to each elector.
This card indicates the date of poll, the time of the poll, the elector's number on the register and the polling station at which the elector may vote.
The returning officer also sends a ballot paper by post to each postal voter and arranges to have ballot papers brought to electors with physical disabilities registered on the special voters list.

Polling places are appointed by county councils. The returning officer provides polling stations at each polling place. Usually schools or other public buildings are used. Each polling station is supervised on polling day by a presiding officer assisted by a polling clerk. A candidate may be represented at a polling station by an agent who assists in the prevention of electoral offences.
