Postal Voting

What is Postal Voting?

If you do not wish or are unable for any reason to vote in person at your designated polling station, you can still vote in an election using a postal vote. If, for example, you are away on holiday or simply prefer the convenience of having your ballot paper sent to you, you can apply to vote by post.

You will need to complete a postal vote application form. Part of the application will require that you enter your date of birth and usual signature. This is a security measure, which will be compared to your postal voting statement that you will complete when we send the actual ballot paper(s) to you.

An application for a postal vote must be received by the Electoral Registration Officer by 5pm 11 working days prior to polling day.

Your postal ballot paper will then be sent to you as soon as possible and must be returned by 10pm on the day of poll, together with your postal voting statement.

You can download a postal vote application form at the bottom of this page.
