You may choose to vote by post or by proxy in an election if you prefer to do so. This means that you can vote yourself by post or ask a friend or relative to cast your vote for you at the polling station.
If you want to vote by post, click to complete a Postal Voting Application form. You need to return the form by post as it requires your signature. Address details are given at the end of the form. For more details please phone the helpline on 01293 438346.
You can apply for a postal vote for a particular election, for a set period of time or for all future elections. Postal votes can be sent out to addresses in the UK and abroad.
When the next election comes around a postal ballot will be sent automatically to you about a week before polling day.
If you are unable to vote in person, you can apply to vote by proxy (someone else voting on your behalf). You can apply to vote by proxy for a particular election, for a set period of time or for all future elections.
Click on the link to apply complete a Proxy Voting Application form (on the aboutmyvote website).
You have to be registered to vote before you can ask for a postal or proxy vote. Look on the Electoral Registration page to find out about the Register of Electors and how to get on it.
