Can I bring my dog into the polling station?
Only assistance dogs will be allowed in the polling station, other dogs will need to be tied up outside.

Can I take photos inside the polling station?
You can take pictures outside the polling station but you should not take pictures inside the polling station – if you inadvertently disclose how someone has voted you would be breaking the law.

At the polling station table :
** A member of polling station staff will ask you to confirm your name and address.
** You will be asked to produce your photographic identification.
** They will issue the ballot paper to you.
