Newcastle City Council will continue Covid safety measures under review at all future elections.

How to register to vote

If you wish to register to vote for future elections please go to Register to vote - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)  . The next scheduled Local Government elections will be held in May 2022. 

How do I vote?

You can choose which way you want to vote in elections – either in person at a polling station, by post or you can ask some you trust to vote on your behalf (your proxy) by post or in person.

You can vote by post

If you wish to apply for a postal vote, application forms can be downloaded from the  Electoral Commission website.  Completed forms should be returned to: Electoral Services, Newcastle City Council, Civic Centre, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 8QH or can be emailed to: elections@newcastle.gov.uk

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

Applications to vote by proxy in a future election can be downloaded from the Electoral Commission website.  Completed forms should be returned to: Electoral Services, Newcastle City Council, Civic Centre, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 8QH or can be emailed to: elections@newcastle.gov.uk

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.
