Voting by Post


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.

Postal ballot papers are usually dispatched within 10 working days prior to the Election / Referendum.

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.
