Polling station, someone voting, bring photo ID to vote and postal votes

Postal / proxy application changes

From 31st October 2023, anyone applying for a postal or proxy vote, must include their National Insurance Number, so that they can be verified against the Department of Works & Pensions, the same as when you register to vote.

A new online portal to apply for either type of absent vote will be available after this date, or you can request a paper form to be sent to you in the post by the Elections Team.
