When an election is called, each registered elector will be sent a Poll Card advising where and when they can vote.

These cards will usually be sent out around two weeks before the election.

Please refer to the Voter ID Pilot 2019 page for more information

If you have applied for either a postal or a proxy vote we will send you separate notification.

Proxy voting

You can get someone else to vote for you. Full instructions are sent to you or your proxy ahead of the election.  Please note that your proxy will need to vote at your allocated polling station.

Postal voting

You do not need to wait for an election to be called or a special reason such as holidays or incapacity to vote by post.

To vote by post, you must complete an application form available from the Electoral Registration Team.

At the polling station

Most people still like to vote in their polling station. It's very easy to do - find out more
