How to vote

Voting in person 

If you are registered to vote, a poll card will be sent to you before the election, giving details about your polling station.

View polling stations 

If you cannot attend the polling station on polling day, you can apply to vote by post or proxy. 

Voting by post

If you still need to register to vote by post, you can apply online or request a paper form from electoralservices@north-norfolk.gov.uk or 01263 513811.

The deadline for new postal and postal proxy applications and changes to existing postal or proxy votes is 5pm on Wednesday 17 April 2024. 

Postal voting packs are mailed out about two weeks before election day and include a prepaid envelope for their return. You must return your postal vote before the deadline on polling day, or it will not be counted.

If you miss the post

If you miss the post, you can hand deliver your postal vote and the postal vote of up to 5 other people at the locations below during the stated times. 

Locations to hand in postal votes

Postal votes can only be hand delivered to the Council offices (address below) during regular business hours. Visit our contact us page for opening times.

Council Offices
North Norfolk District Council
Holt Road
Cromer

On polling day, you can also hand in postal votes to any polling station in the electoral area between 7am and 10pm. Please note there are different rules for political campaigners.

You must complete and sign a declaration form when handing in postal votes. The postal votes will be rejected if the declaration form is not completed.

Voting by proxy 

If you cannot vote in person at a polling station and do not wish to vote by post, you can appoint someone else to vote for you. 

Proxy voting is where you ask someone to vote on your behalf at your polling station. A proxy vote counts the same as any other vote and is subject to the same security and secrecy provisions.

You must provide a reason if you apply for a proxy vote. For example, you may be working or studying away from home or on holiday. You must nominate someone to vote on your behalf according to your wishes.

You can apply online. The deadline to apply to vote by proxy in this election is 5pm on Wednesday 24 April 2024. 

Voter ID

You now must show an accepted photo ID to vote at the polling station. These changes have been introduced under the Elections Act 2022.
