Elections

Voting

There are three ways that you can vote:

  • in person, at a polling station
  • by post
  • by proxy

You can only vote once in each election or referendum, unless you’re voting on behalf of someone else, known as a proxy.

For more information on the different ways to vote, you can visit the Electoral Commission's website.

If you’re voting by post or by proxy, you’ll need to complete an application form. You can get an application form by visiting the Electoral Commission's website or by contacting our customer services team.

If you vote in person, you'll receive a poll card telling you where to vote. You can also find your nearest polling station online.
