Make sure you check where your polling station is before you vote on 12 December
Worcester residents are being urged to check the location of their polling station ahead of the general election on December 12 – as some polling stations have changed from previous elections.
Every voter's polling card lists where they need to go to cast their vote on Thursday.
Shane Flynn, Electoral Registration Officer for Worcester City Council, said:
"You might have cast your vote in the same place for many years, but please check your polling card before you set out to vote on December 12 – your polling station may have changed this time."
