Voting by post
In England and Wales, you must be aged 18 or over on polling day to vote at an election or referendum. Ordinarily, those eligible to vote, do so in person at a polling station, but there may be a reason that you cannot do so. In those instances, you can make your vote through the post, but you have to register beforehand.
You can apply to vote by post for a particular election or referendum, for a set period of time, or for all future polls.
Postal votes can be sent out to addresses in the UK and abroad.
