Voting papers just arrived
If by 'voting papers' you mean a polling card, if someone is on the electoral register it is it is not
necessary to have one to enable you to vote. Afaik, if you don't have your card or have lost it, you should bring a valid form of personal identification, such as a passport or driving licence, with you when you go to vote. It is possible to check with the local authority's electoral services team if you are worried you are not on the register. You can try to register to vote even if not on the electoral register or have moved since last voting - assuming the computer hasn't crashed again,and I think you'll need your NI number to do so.
