Cornwall hosts 442 polling stations and on 12 December, there'll be more than 1,500 members of staff ensuring that everything runs smoothly.

Most people will find themselves casting their votes in village halls or schools, but a few will be marking their ballots in some pretty unusual locations.

Here are some of Cornwall’s most unique polling stations:
