I came across some issues with the city's "Where do I vote" website.
It looks like they're just using a giant lookup table of addresses from the last election to figure out where an address votes. So if your address isn't on their list (and a surprising number are not) you get a totally useless error message.
You can get around it by trying the addresses of some of your neighbours. If you're in ward 2, you can use the lookup tool I created for Matt Jelly's website, which is based on geography rather than an address list.
We don't want people not voting just because of limitations to the city's website.
