Ways of voting
2. Vote by post
Anyone who is registered to vote can apply to vote by post, you do not need a reason to do so. Voting by post is an easy and convenient way of voting if you're unable to get to the polling station.
If you're registered to vote and would like to request a postal vote, you'll need to complete application form. This would then need to be returned to the electoral registration office.
