Postal or proxy voting - apply early

If you are shielding, vulnerable or would just prefer not to go to the polling station you can apply for a postal vote or a proxy vote, where someone votes on your behalf.

You must be registered to vote to apply for a postal or proxy vote, and so must your proxy. You can download a postal or proxy vote form from the Electoral Commission website.

If you do not have online access, please call for a postal or proxy form to be sent out to you on 01733 452249.

The postal vote application deadline for all forms to be received for these elections is 5pm on Tuesday 20 April 2021.

If you would like to apply for a proxy vote, this means someone voting on your behalf, the deadline for applying for a new proxy arrangement is 5pm on Tuesday 27 April 2021.

If you already have a postal or proxy application in place you do not need to apply again.

Polling stations

The hours of poll are 7am to 10pm on Thursday 6 May 2021. Details of your polling station may have changed for this election, you may need to vote at a different location, or in a different building. Please check your poll card for the location of your polling station.

Making polling stations a safe place to visit

We are putting arrangements in place to help ensure polling stations are a safe place to vote.

You can expect many of the measures you've become used to in recent months in shops and banks, such as hand sanitiser, screening, one-way systems, floor markings and face coverings.

You may be asked to queue outside the polling station so that staff can monitor the number of people in the premises at one time. You can also bring along your own pen or pencil.

Further information can also be found at the Electoral Commission website.
