Election polls Times
Millions of Brits will go to the polls today to elect the next government, after weeks of campaigning by the political parties.
It will be one of the closest elections races in years, and your chance to have your say has finally arrived as the polls open at 7am this morning.
Here's all you need to know about what to do to cast your vote today.
Where do I go to vote?
The location of your polling station will be written on your polling card.
If you've lost it, don't worry. You can find out where you have to go by contacting your local election office.
Just put your postcode into the search at AboutMyVote.co.uk and it'll tell you who to get in touch with.
Can I vote without my polling card?
Yes. It might speed the process up a little if you have your polling card with you, but you can vote without it.
When can I vote?
Polling stations are open from 7am to 10pm on Thursday.
What do I do when I get to the polling station?
When you arrive at the polling station, there will be people sitting at a desk with a copy of the electoral register.
If you have it with you, you can give them your polling card.
Otherwise you can just give them your name and address and they'll check it against the list.
Who should I vote for?
You can read all about each party's manifesto on their individual websites.
It's expected to be a close call in many constituencies, so voters are being urged to do their research before going to the polls.
In the meantime, you can take our non-scientific quiz below for a rough idea.
How to I vote?
Take your ballot paper into a polling booth.
Follow the instructions on the notices in the polling booth and on the top of the ballot paper to vote.

Who was the winner of the 1936 election that predicted correctly by which poll
George Gallup correctly predicted that FDR would handily defeat Alf Landon by using a survey with a relatively small random sample of about 1000 people; meanwhile the Funk & Wagnalls Literary Digest used a sample of more than a million of its readers, who were disproportionately wealthy and supportive of the Republicans, to predict that Landon would win in a landslide, and at first the Literary Digest poll was more widely known.
