Cast your vote in general election

Residents in Northumberland have been urged to cast their votes in the General Election.

Some 285 polling stations are open from 7am to 10pm today in communities across the county, and Northumberland County Council is calling on people to use their vote.

Polling cards have been posted to voters in recent weeks, informing them of their elector number and nearest polling station, but it is not essential to take them along when voting.
