Signature Refresh 2021
If you are a postal voter and your postal vote is over five years old, you may receive a Signature Refresh letter from us. We are legally required to request a fresh signature from postal voters every five years. Please click here for more information.

 


The 2021 Local and Greater Manchester Mayoral elections will take place at a time when COVID-19 continues to present risks to public health. Postal Voting gives you the option of voting securely from home.

If you are unable to make it to your Poll Station on Polling day you can apply to vote by post instead. Voting by post is secure and safe and you will mark your vote on the ballot paper in secret, sealing the envelope yourself.

Postal ballot papers are usually dispatched within 10 working days prior to the Election / Referendum & the deadline for applications is strictly 11 working days prior to the election. We advise submitting applications as soon as possible rather than leave it to nearer the election, as you will be included in the earliest possible dispatch.

To ensure voting by post is secure you will need to provide your Date of Birth and Signature, also known as your personal identifiers. When the postal ballot paper has been returned, the personal identifiers are paired with the ones you used on the postal vote application and the ballot paper remains sealed so giving this information will not affect the secrecy of your vote.
Postal vote application form.
You must be registered to vote in order to apply for a postal vote.

Postal vote signatures need to be updated every 5 years by law, or if there have been any changes to your signature. The postal vote application form must be returned to us by post or scanned and sent by email. We cannot accept digital signatures as it must be the way you would sign your name on paper.
