Register to vote for the General Election 2019

Register by 11:59pm on 26 November to vote in the General Election on 12 December

Apply for a postal vote, get a replacement ballot paper if you have spoiled or lost yours or cancel your postal vote.

You need to apply for a postal vote by 5pm on the 26 November to vote in the General Election on the 12 December. 

As postal vote packs cannot be printed until candidate nominations close on the 15 November, it may be prudent for UK voters living overseas to consider setting up a proxy vote to have someone they trust vote on their behalf on 12 December.

Postal votes are normally sent to electors about two weeks before an election, we are therefore encouraging electors who will not be able to make it to their polling station to apply for a postal vote.

Anyone who is registered to vote can apply to become a postal voter. For security reasons we require both your signature and date of birth, these details must match those you previously provided.

Voting by post is an easy and convenient way of voting if you are unable to get to the polling station. Ballot papers will be sent to your address before polling day so that you can cast your vote and return it by post.

Spoilt and damaged ballot papers

If you have damaged or spoilt your postal vote, you can get a replacement until 5pm on polling day. Do not destroy or throw away your postal ballot papers. You will need to return them before you can get a replacement.
