The deadline for receipt of a postal vote application for a specific election is by 5pm 11 working days before polling day.

For security, you’ll need to tell us your date of birth and sign the application. We’ll send you a postal voting statement with your ballot papers, and we check that the details are the same on your completed statement when you post it back.

Postal votes can only be issued to electors registered under Individual Electoral Register (IER).

If you register to vote by post, you won’t be able to vote at a polling station.
