How do I apply for a postal vote, or make changes
to an existing postal vote?
If you would like to vote by post, you first need to complete a postal
vote application form which you can downloaded by clicking here. Completed forms need to be return to the
Electoral Services team by 5pm on 18
note that whilst forms can be downloaded from our website the law does not
allow requests purely online.
The deadline for electors to make changes (including cancellations) to
existing absent vote arrangements (i.e. postal, proxy and postal proxy) is 5pm,
18 April. If, however, an elector is a postal voter and has already returned
their postal ballot paper(s), they cannot make changes after that time, even if
this is before 5pm, 18 April.
When can I expect to receive my postal vote?
Postal vote packs for those who usually vote by post, or for new
applications received before 5 April 2018 will be delivered from 19 April 2018.
New Postal Vote applications received
after 5 April 2018 and before the deadline on 18 April 2017 will be delivered
from 24 April 2018.
