Anyone can vote by post but you will have to complete an application form. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 01772 906908 to request a form.
Once the application form has been completed you will be added to the list of postal voters and will receive a letter of confirmation.
You can apply for a postal vote for a indefinite or temporary period and you can also specify which elections you would like a postal vote for. Please note that if you change your address you will have to apply again for a postal vote at your new address.
Before the election you will be sent a polling card advising you of your postal voting arrangement and the dates you should expect the delivery of your ballot paper postal pack to arrive.
When your ballot paper postal pack arrives it will contain your ballot paper(s), a brown ballot paper envelope, a postal voting statement and a white return envelope.
Once you have marked your ballot paper(s) in secret and sealed up in the brown envelope you must complete the security statement by entering your date of birth and signature on the statement.
Both the security statement and brown envelope containing your ballot paper should be placed inside the white return envelope ensuring the address is showing through the envelope window. You then need to seal the envelope and post it back.
Please ensure that the statement is completed with your signature and date of birth as failure to do this will make your vote invalid.
For further information and an application form please contact Electoral Services on 01772 906908 or email us at email@example.com.
