How to apply for a postal vote

Follow this link to view our easy to follow guide on how to fill out your postal vote

Anyone can apply to vote by post.

Voting by post is an easy and convenient way of voting. Contact electoral services and we will send you a postal vote form. You can apply for a postal vote for one specific election or for as long as you choose; you must get your completed application forms to the election team at least 11 working days before polling day.

When Voting by post you are required to complete a postal vote statement, which you must return with your ballot papers. We check this information against the information you supply on your application form to make sure that no one else can use your vote.

It is also recommended if you will be overseas during the election period there may not be enough time for you to receive and return a postal vote. It would be sensible to nominate a proxy in this instance. Postal ballot papers are usually delivered 2 weeks before an election.

If you will be on holiday or out of the country, we would strongly recommend that you nominate a Proxy instead of Voting by post.
