Q: Is it an offence to use a taxi or private-hire vehicle to travel to a polling station to vote?

A: No, it is not. Voters can hire or drive a taxi or private-hire vehicle, or be ferried in a private vehicle, to or from a polling station to vote.

However, it is an offence to organise transport to ferry voters to or from a polling station, for the purpose of inducing them to vote at the election.
