People across the country are casting their vote in the local elections today (May 6).
Polling stations have been open since 7am but if you are yet to vote, you have until 10pm.
You must vote at your assigned polling station, which is likely to be a public building such as a school or community hall close to your address.
The polling station will be included on the polling card sent to you in the post.
Without your polling card you can still turn up to the polling station and vote.
Just turn up to the location and provide your name and address.
If you're completing a postal vote, it needs to be with your local council by 10pm to be counted.
If you are registered to vote but you have misplaced your polling card, simply enter your postcode in the widget below to find out.
If you're worried about your completed postal vote not arriving in time, you can hand it in at your local polling station before voting closes this evening.
Emergency proxy votes will be available up until 5pm if you need to self-isolate due to COVID-19.
People will be required to wear a mask.
It is recommended that voters bring their own pen or pencil to mark their ballot papers.
