If you have not already registered to vote and want a postal vote, please note that the postal pack will not be posted until the 3rd December, so if you are away before that date and not coming back before the 12th December, then a postal is unlikely to be a suitable option. This is particularly key if you are an overseas voter or your postal pack is being posted abroad.
An alternative to having a postal vote if you are unable to attend the polling place is to appoint a proxy to vote on your behalf. This must be set up by the 4th December.
Your proxy can apply to be a postal voter as well and must be set up by 5pm on the 26th November.
