What to bring with you on polling day

With local elections in Warwickshire over a week away Warwick District Council advise what you should do when visiting a polling station on Thursday 6 May.

People voting in person are encouraged to keep themselves and others safe by:

  • Wearing a face covering.
  • Bringing your own pen or pencil.
  • Cleaning their hands when entering and leaving the polling station.
  • Keeping a safe distance.

Voters should not attend the polling station if they have symptoms of Covid-19 or if they have been asked to self-isolate. Anyone who develops symptoms or is asked to self-isolate shortly before polling day has up to 5 pm on polling day to apply for an emergency proxy vote. This allows them to nominate someone they trust to vote on their behalf.
