The deadline to apply to vote by post for the 2019 general election has passed.
If you are registered to vote, you can apply to vote by post if you are unable to attend the polling station to vote. You can apply to have a postal vote for a single election, for a fixed period, or on a permanent basis.
If you choose to vote by post your ballot papers are posted directly to your home address approximately two weeks before the election. It is possible to have your ballot papers delivered to an address other than your home address provided that you state the reason for this.
If you want to have your postal vote sent overseas (for example, if you will be working overseas), please consider the reliability of the local postal service before applying.
When you apply to vote by post, you will need to provide your date of birth and a sample signature. You will be required to provide this same information when you receive your postal voting pack. If you are unable to provide a consistent signature on your application, please contact us on 023 9283 4074 for further advice.
