How to register to vote

You can register to vote in future elections, online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote or contact the elections team by email or phone.

 

Where do I vote

Here is a link to find out where your polling station is.  All you need is your postcode.  

 

How do I vote?

You can vote in person at your allocated polling station. 

You will receive a poll card prior to the election telling you where your polling station is located.  The poll card also confirms that you are registered to vote so do not need to register again.  You do not need to take your poll card with you when you vote but it can help to speed up the process if you do so.

You can also find your polling station online by clicking on the “My Neighbourhood” tab on the council’s website and entering your postcode when prompted.

You can ask someone to vote on your behalf at the polling station (your proxy)

The person you appoint must also be a registered elector to act as your proxy.  It must be someone you can trust to vote in accordance with your instructions. 

The deadline for proxy vote applications for the Police and Crime Commissioner elections was 5pm on Wednesday 10 July 2019.

You can vote by post

You will need to complete an application form and provide your signature and date of birth.  These details will be checked against the postal voting statement you need to submit with your ballot paper(s) to ensure that they match and are valid.

If you have trouble signing your name consistently you can contact Electoral Services who can advise you how to vote by post in these circumstances.

The deadline to apply to vote by post for the Police and Crime Commissioner elections was 5pm Wednesday 3 July 2019.
