Anyone who is registered to vote can sign up for a postal vote, so long as they are aged 18 or over and eligible to vote.
You can download an application form, print it off and complete it. Details of how to return it can be found on the form.
If you don't have access to a printer, contact us and we will post one to you.
You can apply for a postal vote for one election, a set period of time or permanently. Postal votes are sent out on average 10 days before polling day.
Even if you opt for a permanent postal vote you will still be legally required to refresh your signature every five years to ensure that we have an up to date signature for you. We will contact you when it is time for you to do so.
Postal vote applications can either be submitted as an attachment to email@example.com or posted to
Electoral Services Department,
Trafford Town Hall,
