Postal votes

If you are unable to get to your polling station on polling day, you can apply to vote by post or proxy. Anyone included in the Electoral Register may apply for a postal vote. 

You can apply for a postal vote online or contact Electoral Services on 01443 490100 for an application to be sent out to you.

You can apply for a postal vote here

On the form you must state:

  • The Date(s) of an election where you wish to vote by post and also specify the type of election at which you wish to vote by post.
  • The full address to which your ballot paper should be sent to and,
  • Provide your signature and Date of Birth. This will be your personal identifier which will be electronically checked against your completed postal vote to prevent election fraud

If you have applied to vote by post, and your application has been accepted, you will receive your postal ballot paper about a week before polling day. You must post (or take) this back to the address listed so that it reaches the Returning Officer before 10:00 p.m. on polling day. Alternatively, the completed postal vote can be handed in at a Polling Station in your Ward.

Completed application forms should be returned to the:
