The General Election takes place on Thursday 8 June.  The deadline for registering to vote at this election is midnight on 22 May. 

You can register online. You will need your National Insurance (NI) number.  If you have any queries, contact our Electoral Services team on email or call 020 8207 7481.

Ways to vote:

In person at a polling station:

If you are registered to vote, you should receive your polling card very shortly through the post, if you haven't already done so.   If you don't receive a poll card and know that you have registered to vote, please contact us. The card tells you where you should vote – you can only vote at your allocated polling station. It is helpful if you take your poll card with you but you don’t have to.

By post:

If you are registered for a postal vote you will be sent your ballot paper before the election and you will need to post it back to us. To vote by post you need to apply and forms have to be completed and returned by 5pm on Tuesday 23 May. The postal voting packs containing your ballot paper will be sent between Tuesday 23 and Friday 26 May. If you are going away before these dates and not returning until after 8 June you must consider appointing a proxy. Please contact Hertsmere for advice.

Voting by proxy:

Proxy voting means another person can vote on your behalf. To have a proxy vote forms have to be completed and returned to us by 5pm on Wednesday 31 May. You can have someone vote on your behalf if you will be away on holiday, you have to work away from home or you are ill or in hospital. For more information and to apply online our registering to vote page.

If you are unsure if you are registered to vote or want a hard copy of any of the application forms please call 020 8207 7481 or email elections@hertsmere.gov.uk
