Making polling stations a safe place to visit
We are putting arrangements in place to help ensure polling stations are a safe place to vote.
You can expect many of the measures you've become used to in recent months in shops and banks, such as hand sanitiser, screening, one-way systems, floor markings and face coverings.
You may be asked to queue outside the polling station so that staff can monitor the number of people in the premises at one time. You can also bring along your own pen or pencil.
