Covid-19 safety measures at this year's elections

We have been working closely with our public health team to ensure your safety is paramount.

We can assure you we are putting in a number of safety measures to keep you safe at the polling station.

The measures will include some of those you are already accustomed to, which are similar to those in shops, banks and other establishments and include, social distancing, use of sanitiser, floor markings, screens and wearing a face mask (unless you are exempt).

In addition, there will also be a limit on the number of people who enter the polling station and a one way system will be in place.

All polling station staff will be required to use a rapid test to check they do not have Covid-19. Find out how to get rapid tests to use at home if you are working at the election.
