For those who choose to vote in person, polling stations will be open on May 6. People voting in person are asked to bring their own pen or pencil, wear a face covering, clean hands when entering and leaving the station, and keep a safe distance from other voters.

Anyone with symptoms of coronavirus, or asked to self-isolate, should not go to the polling stations. There will be provisions in place to apply for an emergency proxy vote in case of medical circumstances.
