Polling cards and electoral registration

Hackney Town Hall

Following media reports about electoral registration problems in Hackney, the Council would like to assure residents that there is no widespread problem with electoral registration, and that there are only a handful of cases that we are aware of where voters who have tried to register have not been successful. Each of those cases is being investigated individually.

We have also received reports of some residents not receiving poll cards. We have decided to do a hand delivery of additional poll cards this evening and tomorrow morning, but would like to remind residents that if they are registered they do not need a poll card to vote.

If you have registered to vote but have not received a poll card, we recommend you attend your polling station as normal. You can find out where your polling station is here.
