You can apply to vote by post for a particular election, for a set period of time or for all future elections. But you must be registered to vote first. Postal votes can be sent out to addresses in the UK and abroad.
Allow enough time when applying so you can receive your ballot paper and return it by election day.

You can also apply to vote by proxy if you are unable to go to the polling station on election day. A proxy is someone who will go to the polling station and vote with your authority on your behalf. A proxy can only be used if special reasons apply as set out below:
If you do choose a proxy to vote for you, remember that he or she will have to go to your usual polling station to vote on your behalf.
