How do I apply to vote by post?

A postal vote enables you to receive and return your ballot paper via the post rather than going to the polling station.

Please note that the deadline for completing a Postal Vote for the 2016 Borough Ward Elections is 5pm on Tuesday 19th April.

Download and complete the postal vote application form and return it to:

Electoral Services Office
Room 22
Town Hall
WD17 3EX

Things to note:    

  • Applications can be made for a single election  or indefinitely
  • A postal vote can be sent to your home address or any other address specified by you
  • Postal votes can be sent overseas, but you need to consider whether there would be time for you to receive and return your ballot paper by polling day
  • Postal votes are usually despatched by first class post about a week before polling day
  • If you have been sent a postal vote, you cannot vote in person at a polling station
  • Postal votes can be posted back to the council offices or returned by hand to the council offices or polling station
  • Postal votes have to be received at the council or polling station by the close of poll on polling day
