Here is what you need to know about the election in Richmond Park and North Kingston

Richmond Park and North Kingston currently has one of the smallest majorities in the country, with just 45 votes between the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats.

But that could all change at the end of this week as the country heads to the polls with Brexit in the forefront of people’s minds.

Richmond is a heavily remain constituency, and incumbent MP Zac Goldsmith’s commitment to leave the EU with Boris Johnson’s deal could prove costly and allow Liberal Democrat Sarah Olney back into office.

Here is everything you need to know about voting in Richmond Park and North Kingston:

Where can I vote?

There have been a small number of changes to some polling station locations since the last election:

In North Richmond ward, the polling station has moved from St John the Divine Church back to Raleigh Road United Church Hall

In Kew Ward, the polling station has moved from St Anne’s Church Hall back to Queens School

A list of polling stations in the constituency can be found below, including, somewhat unusually, eight caravans.

These are exhibition units rather than mobile homes, and are standard practice in Richmond where they have been used for many years.

You can only vote at the polling station which has been assigned to you unless you have chosen to vote by post.

The location of the polling station is available on the polling card you should have received through the post, but you can visit the My Richmond pages on the council website (https://richmond.gov.uk/myrichmond) to use your address to find your specific polling station. There is also a map which will show you the address of your allocated station and the distance from your home.
