How to Vote

You can vote in the following ways:

At your polling station

A few days before polling day you will receive a Poll Card which will contain your own unique electoral register reference number and tell you where you should go to vote. Please visit our 'On Election Day' pages to find out more on what to do on an election day. On this page you can also watch a video on how to vote in person at a European Parliament Election.

To find out where your polling station is please use the 'where to vote' page.

 

By Post

Postal voting is available to anyone, whatever the circumstances. You can apply for a postal vote for a particular election, for a set period of time, or for a permanent postal vote. To apply, please contact your local electoral registration office. Postal voters are now required to provide a signature and give their date of birth on the application form. This information is used as a security measure to prevent anyone else using your vote.

During the Election the Council will be operating a telephone service, Language Line, which you can call if English is not your first language and you would like more information about postal voting. The number is 01261 813423.

Proxy Voting

Proxy voting is available to people who cannot reasonably be expected to attend their polling station at elections because they will be away from home temporarily on the date of the election.

Long - term proxy is available to people who cannot reasonably be expected to attend their polling station at elections because they suffer from a physical incapacity, or their employment duties, or attendance on a course of study takes them away from home.

Anyone can act as your proxy as long as they are eligible to vote in the election and they are willing to vote on your behalf.
