General Election 2019

The general election will take place on Thursday 12 December 2019. The deadline to apply for a postal vote is 5pm on Tuesday 26 November 2019. Are you registered to vote?

Postal voting for proxy voters

If you have been appointed as a proxy voter and are unable to attend your polling station in person, you can apply to have ballot papers sent to you by post.

You must apply for the postal vote, not the person who has appointed you to vote for them.

To request an application for a proxy to vote by post, please email electionsoffice@birmingham.gov.uk or call the helpline 0121 303 2731.

It’s important to remember that although the deadline to appoint a proxy is 5pm 6 working days before polling day, when the proxy wishes to apply for a postal vote, the deadline becomes 5pm 11 working days prior to polling day.
