Postal vote application forms from parties and campaigners


Parties and campaigners may encourage voters to vote by post by issuing postal vote application forms. This could be a paper form sent through the post, or a website with information.

Parties are not breaking any rules if they encourage voters to apply to vote by post, and should be free to encourage voters to cast their vote in a way that’s most convenient for them. There is information about this in the Code of Conduct for UK Parliamentary general elections, local elections in England and Police and Crime Commissioner elections in England and Wales, and the Code of Conduct for Scottish Parliament elections, Scottish council elections, local elections in Wales and Senedd Cymru elections.
