You can now apply for an absent vote, such as a postal vote or proxy vote, up to six working days before an election.
You can have a postal vote instead of going to your polling station. We can send it to any address, even abroad. But, bear in mind that we must receive the ballot paper back by the day of the election.
You can apply for a postal vote by completing an application form, which you should return to us by Wednesday 7 May 2014.
You can obtain a postal vote application form by contacting electoral services.
You can have a proxy vote if you cannot get to the polling station on polling day. This is where you appoint somebody to vote for you. They can go along to your polling station and cast your vote.
You can apply for a proxy vote by completing a proxy vote application form, which you should return to us by Wednesday 14 May 2014.
If your proxy is going to be away from home on the day of the election, they can apply for your proxy ballot paper to be posted to them.
