Remember the polling stations are open from 7am to 10pm on the day of the election.

What if I can’t get to my polling station?

Our page on Different ways to Vote includes details of postal votes (where you can vote in advance of election day by post) and proxy voting (where you can ask someone to vote on your behalf).

  • Postal vote applications and changes deadline is 5pm on Monday 15 April 2019.
  • Proxy vote applications and deadline is 5pm Wednesday 24 April 2019.
