Plan how you will vote

Polling station

Please check your poll card as your polling station might have changed since you last voted and remember to bring your mask and a pen or pencil. Polling places are usually busier early in the morning and after school so you may want to go at a different time when it’s likely to be quieter.

Postal voting

You may prefer your ballot papers to be posted to you, so you don’t need to go to a polling station to vote. If you are not already registered for a postal vote you can vote by post.

The deadline for applying for a postal vote at these elections was 20 April 2021 at 5pm.

You may appoint someone to vote on your behalf by completing can an application to vote by proxy.

The person you appoint as proxy must be registered to vote, be eligible to vote in these elections, and able to visit the polling station at which you would normally go to vote. This person can only vote as proxy for up to two voters unless they are close relations of the voters.
