Who should I contact - or is it too late?

I take it you are registered? If you are not, I would think its too late to sort out now.

we haven't either, nor lots of people i know, bad isn't it! you can still vote though

Yes, we're registered, and have voted in every other election clutching our card to our little chests. How can you vote without your voting card?

Just give the polling station operative your details when you go to vote - says on the back of my card that I don't need it, but it saves time if I take it with me

I haven't got mine either - I rang on Thursday to check and was told that I was registered, didn't know what had happened to my card (actually I think I know - I didn't change my address in time for it to come here). They checked I was registered, told me where to go to vote and said to just turn up give my (old) address where the card had gone to, and my name and it would be fine.

We haven't either. You don't need it.

You just turn up and give your name and address, no need to show ID or anything.

I am amazed that they still allow it tbh (i have to spend more time proving I am who i say i am to collect a letter from the po)

Phone up and check you are registered, i check on Frdiay to find we weren't but they put us back on the list.

Oh fab - I'll just pitch up then. Not that it will make a jot of difference, as it's either Labour or SNP here and as we vote for neither we're hardly likely to have any effect on the outcome!
