Voting at a Polling Station - 23 June 2022

Polling Stations open from 7.00am until 10.00pm on Polling Day – 23 June 2022

Busy times in polling stations often include 7.00am to 9.30am, lunchtime, 3.30pm to 4.30pm and 6.00pm to 8.00pm.

Trying to avoid these peak times may mean voters have to wait for a shorter period of time.

Anyone queuing to vote at a polling station by 10pm will still be able to vote.
