What happens if I forgot or lost my polling card?

The big day has arrived - after six weeks of wall-to-wall general election news coverage it is time to vote.

As a committed voter, you registered, watched the debates and researched each party's manifesto.

But you never received your polling card or somehow managed to lose it. Can you still turn out to vote? Do not worry if you find yourself in this situation. The Electoral Commission website says the answer is yes if you registered to vote.

The website reads: "Don't let that stop you voting, you don't need your polling card to vote if you are on the electoral register - and if you are unsure where you polling station is, your local authority can remind you.

"You can find the contact details of your local authority by entering your postcode on our registration website,"

So there is no need to worry, committed voter. Go to your polling station between 7am and 10pm to cast your vote.

And remember to follow DevonLive's coverage of the counts across out county throughout the night.
