Tomorrow (12 December) sees the nation head to the polls and City of York Council is reminding people of how and where they can vote in the city.

560 staff will be helping across the city to open 128 polling stations and count the votes cast throughout the day. With over 150,000 residents eligible to vote across York’s two constituencies it promises to be a busy day.

Residents can only vote in person at their designated 'polling station' on election day, during opening hours. Polling stations open at 7am and will close at 10pm.

A polling card has been sent to homes across the city prior to the election date letting people know:

  • their designated polling station

  • the times they can attend to cast their vote.

You don’t need to take your polling card to be able to vote. Those who haven’t received one but think they are eligible are encouraged to:

  • check you're registered to vote by contacting Electoral Services on 01904 551007 or emailing

  • find your designated polling station by contacting Electoral Services on 01904 551007 or emailing

  • still vote at your designated polling station by providing your name and address to the polling clerk

Those with a postal vote for a City of York Council constituency (either York Central or York Outer) can hand theirs in at any polling station in the city.

Once the polling stations have closed the votes will be brought to Energise for the count which will take place overnight.
