Postal and proxy voting

If you can't get to a polling station you can apply for a postal (82.5 KB) Word 97-2003  or proxy (55.0 KB) Word 97-2003 vote. Proxy voting is when you nominate someone else to vote on your behalf.

If you need help filling in your form please phone 01235 540310. Please send completed postal and proxy vote forms to the address above.

If, when you have received your postal voting form, you are unsure what to do, why not check out the video below which gives simple step-by-step instructions:

Please note: A common misconception is that if you notified us last year you don’t need to this year.  Unfortunately the information cannot be used again, so households need to let us know each year even if their details haven’t changed. Contrary to popular belief, people are also not automatically registered even if they pay council tax. Registering is particularly important for anyone who has recently moved home.
