Voting by post
Apply for a postal vote
You can apply online for a postal vote. You must be registered to vote before you can apply for a postal vote.
You will need to prove your identity when applying. You will need to reapply for a postal vote every three years.
You’ll also need to upload a photo of your handwritten signature in black ink on plain white paper.
If you cannot provide a signature or one that always looks the same, you may be able to apply for a postal vote signature waiver.
You might be asked for extra documents to identify you.
You can apply for just one election, for a specific time period, or for 3 years.
