Everything residents need to know about polling day

With the elections just days away, Wealden District Council is urging voters to make sure that they have the correct ID and information to cast their votes.

Residents must vote at the polling station they have been assigned – this can be checked by looking at the details on the poll card, or by following the link here. Find your polling station | Where Do I Vote?

If residents are registered to vote, a polling card is not necessary to bring with them, but will help staff to speed up the process.

If the poll card is lost, residents can contact Wealden District Council on 01892 602417 to confirm their local poll station.

People who registered for a postal vote in the elections are being reminded to make sure they complete the paperwork and post their vote back as soon as they can.

Everyone who applied for a postal vote should receive it in the next couple of days.

Voters need to fill in the necessary paperwork and send in their vote ahead of Election Day on Thursday 4 May.

Anyone who has a postal vote will not be able to vote at a polling station, even if they do not use their postal vote.

All residents voting will need to provide photo identification before voting.  All forms of accepted photographic ID, can be viewed here.
