Apply for a postal vote if you can't get to your polling station on the day of an election.
Voting by post is an easy and convenient way of voting if you cannot get to your polling station on polling day.
You must print out the application and complete by hand. Then scan or post this back to email@example.com. Please be aware that you are not able to sign this form electronically.
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.
