Voting deadlines approach

The deadline for registering to vote at May’s local elections and national referendum is Thursday (14 April).

Applications received after this date will not permit people to vote on 5 May.

The same deadline also applies to applications for a postal vote.

However if you have registered, but do not think you will be able to visit the polling station yourself, the deadline to appoint a proxy to vote on your behalf is Thursday, 21 April. This does not apply to people who have already registered for a postal vote.

For those who have already applied for a postal vote, ballot packs should begin arriving on doorsteps next week (from 18 April). These should be returned as soon as possible to ensure the vote is counted.
