All Covid-compliance arrangements and requirements are in place. You should expect the same conditions and considerations as you do when out shopping or at the hairdressers.
We are putting arrangements in place to make sure polling stations are safe places to vote. You will notice several differences at polling stations when you go to vote to ensure the safety of all voters and election staff.
The testing of voters is not mandatory; however, we would like to encourage testing prior to voting if you can. To help keep our elections safe our election teams are being offered tests prior to the elections.
Voters can also access rapid lateral flow testing through the Community Testing Programme. These tests provide a result in 30 minutes and can be taken either at home or at an asymptomatic testing sites. To find out where your nearest test site or community collection point is please visit the NHS Track and Trace website.
Kits can be ordered for delivery to your home from the Gov.uk website. It generally takes two days for delivery.
