Weather throughout the day is set to be wet, cold and a bit windy – although at the time of writing it is forecast there will be a gap in the rain between 2pm and 8pm (obviously subject to change..!)
How you can vote:-
– Go to your local polling station, which will be open between 7am and 10pm.
– Tell the staff your name and address so they can check the electoral register. You will then get given a ballot paper.
– Take your ballot paper into the polling booth and *read it carefully* making sure you put a X where required, do not write more on the paper or it may not be counted!!
– After you have voted fold the paper and pop it in the ballot box – do not let anyone else see who you voted for.
You do NOT need to take your polling card with you, but if you have one you can. Of course you can only vote if you’re actually registered! Obviously, if you’re not registered to vote – don’t even bother trying!
We’ll be live from the count later on tonight with a live stream on YouTube, a liveblog and updates on our Instagram. Don’t forget to follow @wrexham on Twitter and wrexhamdotcom on Instagram and to check our special version of this website for updates throughout the night!
And remember…. go out and vote!
