Voting by post is an easy and convenient way of voting if you cannot get to your polling station on polling day.


We must receive your application by post or email by 5pm 11 working days before the date of poll to ensure you are able to vote by post.

Postal vote application form


You must print out the application and complete by hand. Then scan this back to or post to the address below. We cannot accept a form with an electronic signature.


The postal address is:

Democratic Services and Elections

Stroud District Council

Ebley Mill

Ebley Wharf




When voting by post we will send you a postal voting statement and your ballot paper(s) to the address you have requested.  You are required to provide your date of birth and signature on the 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.

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.
