CatusStarbright Sure: Your mother must go to your polling station to cast your vote. She will receive a proxy poll card telling her where and when to cast your vote for you. At the polling station she'll just show the card and state that she's voting on your behalf.

Do you know whether she's received the proxy poll card yet? If she hasn't got it by the end of the week she could contact your local electoral services team. Their contact details can be found here.

There's more guidance on the Electoral Commission's proxy voting page. Hope that helps but let us know if you need any further info
I don't think she has yet but I'll ask and pass on your information. Thank you.

What happens to the House of Lords in a general election?

Can they vote for candidates to represent them in the House of Commons?

You vote for a candidate to be your MP. They represent your constituency in the House of Commons.

To see the candidates in your constituency and the manifestos of their parties, enter your postcode into whocanivotefor.co.uk.

Just two days to go! :shock:

You must vote at your assigned polling station (if you have not applied for a proxy or postal vote).

Polling stations are open from 7am to 10pm on 12 December. Enter your postcode at wheredoivote.co.uk to find yours.

Safe seats and marginal seats - what are they?



Does my vote really matter if I'm in a safe seat?

Some key facts:

  • Polling stations open 7am – 10pm
  • If you are in the queue at 10pm then you are entitled to vote
  • Only voters in Northern Ireland need ID. In England, Scotland and Wales you don't need a polling card nor identification - just bring yourself!
  • If you haven't sent off your postal vote you can hand it in at the polling station and vote in person
  • You can get an emergency proxy if you're ill
  • Everything else you might need to know about casting your vote tomorrow can be found on the Electoral Commission's Get ready for polling day webpage.

Be warned that this is not always rigidly followed at all polling stations. At the last couple of general elections, people queuing were turned away after 10pm. Please do not miss your chance to vote - vote before 9.30pm!
