A polling station, also called a polling place in Scotland, is where you go to cast your vote in an election or referendum.
If you’re registered to vote you’ll receive a poll card in the post telling you where your local polling station is. They will often be at a nearby school or community centre.
Polling stations are open on election day from 7am to 10pm.
There will always be members of staff at a polling station to help if you’re not sure what to do.
