Voting in the election

You can still vote in May’s elections even if you can’t make it to a polling station on election day – Thursday 5 May.

If you’re unable to vote in person, now’s the time to request your postal or proxy vote for Pendle Borough Council’s elections. 

Having a postal vote, or sending someone else to the polling station as a proxy to vote on your behalf, means you can still have your say in elections. 

Andrea Mullin, Elections and Registration Manager, said: “If you’d like to vote by post or by proxy this year and you haven’t already set this up, you’ll need to request this soon.  

“You can apply for postal or proxy votes for a single election on a specific date, a specific period or permanently.”

The deadline for postal vote applications is 5pm on Tuesday 19 April and for proxy voting applications it’s 5pm on Tuesday 26 April. 

Application forms to appoint a proxy or to request a postal vote are available to download from Pendle Borough Council’s website - 

Forms can also be requested from our Elections Office at Nelson Town Hall - call (01282) 661662 or email
