If you are unable to make it to the polling station on Election Day, you can still exercise your right to vote by applying for a proxy or postal vote.
If you’re unable to attend the polling station in person, you can apply for a “proxy” vote – nominating someone else to cast your vote on your behalf. This may be a more reliable option if time is tight for you to receive and return a postal vote. You can also apply for a proxy vote up until just less than a week before the election. Your nominated person will visit the polling station on your behalf and complete your ballot paper with your desired choice. To apply for a proxy vote, you need to complete an application form. Please note there are several forms to choose from, depending on why you need a proxy. Proxy forms must be returned to the council’s civic centre by 5pm on Wednesday 31 May.
If you’d prefer to vote by post, you can apply for a postal vote. You’ll be sent a ballot paper, which you simply complete and return by post. Anyone can apply for a postal vote, and you do not need to give a reason. A postal vote can be sent to any address in the UK or abroad, but your completed ballot paper must be received by the day of the election. To apply for a postal vote, you need to fill out an application form and return it to the council’s civic centre by 5pm on Tuesday 23 May.
If you are not registered to vote there is still time. The deadline to register is midnight on Monday 22 May.
