Local Elections and Referendum 2011
Local Elections and Referendum
By now, electors will have received poll cards giving the location of their designated polling stations.
Polling stations will be open from 7.00am to 10.00pm and all eligible registered electors will be able to cast their vote in person.
Once inside the polling station, voters are required to tell staff their name and address, so that their details can be checked against the electoral register.
Voters will then be given a ballot paper listing the candidates standing for election. They are asked to take the ballot paper to a polling booth and mark a cross (X) in the box to the right of the name of the candidate they want to vote for. They are then asked to fold the ballot paper in half and put it in the ballot box.
Voters are asked not to write anything else on their ballot paper, or their vote may not be counted.
Anyone requiring assistance in completing their ballot paper can take a companion with them, or polling station staff may be able to help.
As well as local elections, there will be a referendum on the voting system used to elect MPs to the House of Commons.
Voters will receive a ballot paper with the following question: At present, the UK uses the first-past-the-post system to elect MPs to the House of Commons. Should the alternative vote system be used, instead?
Further information about how to vote in the referendum and what a yes or no result will mean is available from www.aboutmyvote.co.uk
