The UK General Election takes place on Thursday 12th December. If you’re due to be away from home on Polling Day, or want to ensure that winter weather doesn’t stop you from using your vote, you can apply for a postal vote. The deadline for applications is Tuesday 26th November. You can apply online at www.gov.uk/voting-in-the-uk#postal-voting

Do you want to vote in this year’s General Election but are unsure whether you can make it to the polling station – perhaps due to medical treatment? You can apply to nominate someone else that you trust to cast your vote in your place.  Find out more at www.gov.uk/government/collections/proxy-voting-application-forms and make sure you apply before 4th December.
