Polling station


Polling stations across Hatfield, Potters Bar, Welwyn Garden City and surrounding Hertfordshire villages are now open for the 2015 General Election and local elections.

Polling stations will be open today (Thursday, May 7) from 7am to 10pm.

Registered voters can only vote at the polling station stated on their poll card.

If you are in a queue at your polling station at 10pm you will still be able to vote.

If you arrive after 10pm, then the poll will be closed and you will have missed your chance to take part.

If you have appointed a proxy, they need to make sure they are able to vote at the correct polling station on your behalf.

If you are suddenly unable to vote in person, because you have a medical emergency which prevents you from attending on polling day, or your occupation, service or employment means that you cannot go to the polling station in person, and you only become aware of that fact after the proxy application deadline, then you may be entitled to appoint an emergency proxy.

You can apply for an emergency proxy up until 5pm on polling day. You should contact your local electoral registration office directly to ask about this.

The results from the Welwyn Hatfield and Hertsmere Parliamentary elections will be declared in the early hours of Friday, May 8.

The results from the respective local elections will be announced later in the day.
