Polling stations are now open across the country with people casting their ballots in General Election 2020.

You don't need to bring your polling card with you to vote but you will need to bring official ID like a passport, drivers licence or Garda age card.

If you are vocally supporting one particular candidate do not wear any badges, jackets, flags or any other paraphernalia that supports one candidate or another to the polling station.

Campaigning within 50 metres of a voting centre is not allowed.

No Cameras Or Artistic Drawings!

Polling stations are a no camera zone as well, so no selfies or taking photos of your vote.

It could lead to a fine or spoiling of your vote.

Fill out your ballot with number 1 next to your favourite candidate, number 2 next to your second favourite, and so on down the ballot.

If there's someone you really, really don't want to be elected, you should leave their box blank.

Filling the boxes with a tick or an X, writing on the ballot or including anything that would identify you may lead to your vote being spoiled.

Find Out Where Your Polling Station Is

Ian Power from Spun Out dot i.e. is urging voters to plan their day around getting to their polling station.

"Make sure you think about what time of the day will be accessible to you, to get to the polling station."

"Find out where your polling station is."

"One of the things to remember is to bring photo ID with you."

"If you have your polling card, great! It's not essential to have though, you will be allowed to vote without it so don't worry about that."
