If you are not on the register of electors, you cannot vote in elections. If you have not yet registered or have recently moved, you will need to register by Friday 12 April 2019 to vote in these District and Parish council elections. The easiest way to register is online here - you will need your National Insurance number and date of birth.
If you are away on polling day or you would rather vote by post, you can apply for a postal vote. Application forms are available here or from the Elections Team. Completed postal vote applications must be completed and returned to us by 5pm on Monday 15 April 2019.
The first batch of postal votes will be sent out around 10 April 2019 (for those voters already on the postal vote list). Note that if you request a postal vote close to the deadline of 15 April your postal vote will be sent out later, so you may wish to apply for your postal vote to be sent to an alternative address or consider applying for a proxy vote here (get someone to vote on your behalf).
