Postal and proxy voting
You can only vote if your name appears on the register of electors. If you're not sure whether you're registered, or if you need to register, please contact the Elections Team at the Shirehall on 0345 678 9015. Even when an election has been called, you still have time to register up to 12 working days before polling day.
