If you will be away on polling day, at work or on holiday, are physically unable or just don't have the time to get to a polling station to vote in person, you can still exercise your democratic right to vote. You may have moved house since the electoral register was drawn up and have not yet joined the register at your new address.
Every single vote is vital so and everyone is entitled to a postal vote. Don't forget to register for yours.
You can choose either to vote by post or to appoint someone else - a proxy - to vote on your behalf.
