How can I get a postal vote for the General Election

Thought I would post this in case anyone is interested.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
What is a postal vote?

In England, Scotland and Wales, you can choose to vote by post if you cannot or do not wish to attend your polling station in person.

Different arrangements for postal voting apply in Northern Ireland. See here for further details.

Who can apply for a postal vote?

Anyone who is registered to vote can apply for a postal vote. If you want to know how to register to vote, click here.

Can my postal vote be sent abroad?

Yes. A postal vote can be sent to your home address, or any other address you provide. You just need to remember to allow enough time for it to be returned so it arrives back by 10pm on polling day otherwise your vote won't be counted.

If you're posting your vote from overseas you'll need to pay for postage. Otherwise there's a Freepost envelope provided for returns within the UK.

How can I get a postal vote?

You need to print, fill in and sign this postal application form then return it to your local electoral registration office. You can find the address here.

The likely deadline is 5pm on Tuesday May 23.

Then what happens?

You will receive your postal voting papers in the post once they've been printed, usually around 10 days before the election.

Complete your ballot paper in secret, then put it in the envelope supplied and seal it tight. You must also remember to fill in and sign the accompanying postal voting statement.

Put both items into the larger envelope and post it back to your local electoral registration office as soon as possible.

How can I get a postal vote for the General Election and what is the deadline?
