Voting in person, by post or proxy

Introduction

Three ways to vote

Depending on your circumstances and where you are registered, there are three ways to cast your vote.

They are:

  • in person This means going to the polling station to vote on polling day.
  • by post This means your council will send you a posting voting pack so you can complete your ballot paper at home and return it in the post
  • by proxy This is when you are unable to go to the polling station yourself so you ask a trusted person to vote on your behalf

Find out more about each one, if they are available to you, and how to use them.
