Disappointed there are uncontested candidates being automatically elected. No chance to vote for Town council in my Falmouth area.

Can I just warn people to be vigilant with their personal information today.

It appears there are people sat outside some polling stations doing an 'exit poll' and asking who you have voted for!

Firstly this is none of their business.

Secondly, I believe they are they on behalf of one political party, they are asking to see your polling cards when you enter and I don't believe they have any right to see it.
