Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Don't all voters have a voting card with the fixed polling place on it

No

Individual Polling cards are mailed to each person on the electoral roll before each election, indicating the polling station on that occasion. While they rarely change, polling stations are not fixed.

The polling card is/was just a notiification of the election. You did not need it to vote. Until a trial in May 2018 you did not need to prove your identity, just state you name and address to be given a ballot paper.

In May 2018 local (council) elections, there were some trials requiring ID to vote.

You might say "archaic" or "very trusting".
