Advice for clinically extremely vulnerable people on voting in the elections on 6 May 2021
Polling stations will be open on 6 May and will have safety measures in place; so should you wish, you will be able to vote in person.
If voting in person, you are encouraged to keep yourself and others safe at the polling station by:
- Wearing a face covering
- Bringing your own pen or pencil
- Cleaning your hands when entering and leaving the polling station
- Keeping a safe distance
If you would prefer not to vote in person, you can vote by post, or by appointing someone you trust to vote on your behalf - a proxy vote.
