Register for a posal or proxy vote

If you are unable to make to a poling station you can decide to register by post or by proxy (having someone vote on your behalf)

When voting by post, read all the instructions fully and make sure you sign and date in the right places. If you have a postal vote but don’t post it in time, you can drop it off at your polling station on the day.
