East Devon District Council (EDDC) has become aware that many residents have not received their polling cards. This is due to an error made by an external printing contractor.

The contractor has apologised to the council for the mistake, and they will be sending out polling cards for those affected by first class post today.

For residents looking to see where their polling station is located the Electoral Commission have a helpful postcode search tool which shows this information, and which candidates are standing for election.

Polling stations are open from 7am until 10pm on Thursday 4 July.

The council would like to say sorry for any inconvenience caused by this error. EDDC is doing all it can to make sure that voters across East Devon can have their say in the General Election on Thursday, 4 July. We want to remind people that they do not need to bring a polling card with them to vote, but will need a valid form of official photo ID.
