Arranging a Postal Vote
Voting by post is an easy and convenient way of voting if you are unable to get to your Polling Station.
Anyone can apply to vote by post but you must complete an application form. Once you have completed an application form your details will be entered onto a list of postal voters and an acknowledgement letter will be sent to you. Postal Vote Application forms can sent to us in the post or by email as a scanned attachment, or by fax. If sending by email as a scanned attachment, the image must show a signed form and not a printed signature.
You can choose to vote by post for an individual election, for specified period of time, or indefinitely for all future elections. If you apply to vote by post indefinitely you will only need to apply again if you change your address.
BY-ELECTION - 6 JUNE 2013
WOLLATON WEST WARD
The deadline for new applications to vote by post or to change existing postal or proxy arrangements e.g. cancellation or re-direction, must reach the Electoral Registration Officer no later than 5.00pm on Tuesday 21 May 2013 to be effective for the Wollaton West Ward by-election.
Prior to the election you will be sent a polling card advising you of your postal voting arrangements.
You will then be sent your postal vote through the post approximately 10 days before the election. It will include your ballot paper, a ballot paper envelope, a postal voting statement and a return envelope.
You mark your ballot paper in secret and seal it up in the ballot paper envelope, then complete the postal voting statement by entering your date of birth and signing it. You must make sure the statement is completed properly or it may make your vote invalid.
Alternatively you can arrange a proxy vote, where you nominate someone to vote at the polling station on your behalf. Please click here for further details on voting by proxy or to download an application form
