Counting in the election will begin as soon as the polls close at 22:00 GMT, and will continue overnight with the final results expected on Friday morning.

You wake up on the day of the General Election, head down to your polling station - and then realise you don't have a polling card.

So long as you were previously registered to vote, or registered by November 26 and are not disqualified for any reason, you will have been sent a poll card to your address.

It's not only humans heading to the polling stations. The polling card received through the post is for information purposes only and is not acceptable ID for voting purposes. Just turn up at your polling station and give the officers your name and address.
