Voting Do’s and Don’ts 

If you’re over the age of 18 and on the register of electors then you’re eligible to vote in Friday’s referendums. If you’re a first time voter or just a bit rusty, here’s a handy guide explaining everything you need to do to vote successfully.

You will have received a polling card in the post – one of these has been sent to every elector. Check the date and the location of your polling station. Make sure you know how to get there.

A Statement for the Information of Voters has also been sent to you. It has all the information about both referendums so it is essential reading.

If you haven’t received a polling card but you applied late to be on the register, you can find your elector number and polling station on (just remember to bring proof of address).
