How to Vote

If you are on the Register of Electors you will receive a poll card a few weeks before the elections. This will tell you how, where and when to vote. This card is for information only. Please let us know if you lose or forget your poll card; you can still vote without the poll card, but it is easier if you have it with you.

If you know you will not be able to get to the polling station on election day, you can apply for a postal vote or a proxy vote.

  • Parliamentary General Elections
