Where to vote
Once you are registered to vote and you meet the eligibility criteria for voting in a referendum, a polling information card will be posted to your registered home address before polling day.
The polling information card will name the polling station that you are registered to vote at on the date of the referendum.
This will likely to be the polling station that is closest to your registered address.
What you need to vote
It is very important to remember that you can only vote at the polling station listed on your polling information card but you don’t need to bring your polling information card with you to vote, just ensure that you have valid ID.
You can use the following documents to prove your identity:
- A passport (either a passport card or passport book)
- A driving licence
- A workplace identity card (it must have a photograph)
- A student identity card (it must have a photograph)
- A travel document (it must have a photograph)
- A Public Services Card
- A bank or credit union account book with your name and address in the constituency
If you do not have any of the documents listed above, you can use one of the following, along with evidence of your address in the constituency:
- A cheque book or card
- A credit card
- A birth or marriage certificate
