Elections Office: How Can I Vote By Post?
Legislation introduced recently allows postal voting "on demand". Many people find voting by post more convenient.
Previously you had to meet certain criteria in order to obtain a postal vote. The new rule means anyone can vote by post, which is a great advance.
You can register to vote by post for a specific election or at all elections until further notice.
If you choose to vote by post, your ballot paper will be sent to you between one and two weeks before election day.
Mark your ballot paper in the normal way
Complete the Postal Voting Statement - this no longer needs to be witnessed, however, Personal Identifiers must be supplied so that security checks can be made.
Return it before the close of poll.

Please remember, at the 2010 local elections on 6th May, the deadline for new postal vote applications to reach the Elections Office is 20th April at 5pm.
You can post or deliver it personally to The Elections Office, fax the form, or e-mail the scanned image of the signed form.
