We’ve got an interactive map of all the polling stations in Newham to help you vote in the general election.

Where’s my polling station?

Your polling station depends on where you live in the borough. Yours should be listed on your polling card, but if you don’t have a polling card or you are not sure, you can put your postcode into this official website and it will either tell you your polling station, or who you need to call to find out.

When can I vote in the election?

You can vote at your local polling station between 7am and 10pm on Thursday June 8.

Who should I vote for in the general election?

We’re not going to tell you who to vote for, but check out our guides to the East Ham and West Ham candidates. You can watch the West Ham candidates and the East Ham candidates answer voters questions in our hustings videos.

How do I vote in the election?

When you arrive at the polling station, you will show the staff your polling card, or tell them your name, and they will check you off the list and hand you your ballot paper. You DO NOT need to take your polling card if you have lost it or didn’t receive it.

Next you take your ballot paper into a booth, and read the instructions on how to vote carefully.

Choose your candidate, and mark the paper according to the instructions.

If you make a mistake, let the staff know and they can give you a replacement ballot paper.

When you’ve made your mark next to your preferred candidate, fold the paper in half and put it into the ballot box - and you’re done!

If you need any help at any point, just ask the staff.

Can I take selfies when I vote?

You can take as many pictures of yourself as you like OUTSIDE the polling station, but photography is banned inside and could get you into trouble.
