Votes are cast at a polling station. Many schools are turned into polling stations on election day
Voters are issued with a polling card, which they must hand over in order to receive their voting form
Votes are cast in private - usually in booths like these ones
The voter puts an X next to the name of the candidate they want to vote for
Then they post their voting form in a ballot box, which is secured so no-one can interfere with it
Once the polling station has closed, the ballot box is taken to where the votes are counted
An army of people is responsible for counting the votes
Once all the votes have been counted, the results are announced. It's really nerve-wracking!
