Anyone who is registered to vote can sign up for a postal vote, so long as you 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.
The deadline for applying for (or cancelling) a postal vote for the 2 May 2019 elections is 15 April 2019 at 5pm.
