Register to vote

People who have already registered to vote will either already have received, or will soon receive, their poll cards which they should try to bring with them when they turn out to vote at their local polling station, which will be specified on their poll card, from 7am until 10pm on 12th December.

People who haven’t yet registered to vote, or who have recently moved house and needs to register to vote at their new address, have until Tuesday 26th November to register. They can do this online 

Postal or Proxy Voting

Instead of attending your polling station on election day, you can apply for a postal or proxy vote – full details of how to do that are here

New postal applications must be received no later than 5pm on Tuesday 26th November 2019 to be effective for this General Election.

Postal votes will be sent out around 28th November so if you are going away around this date then it might be more sensible to apply for a proxy vote - which is when someone you trust attends your polling station and votes on your behalf.

Postal votes being sent to an address overseas will be sent on 20th November.

New proxy applications must be received by 5pm on Wednesday 4th December 2019 to be effective for this election. If your proxy wants to vote by post, then the deadline is no later than 5pm on Tuesday 26th November 2019.
