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.
If you cannot attend the polling station on polling day, you can apply to vote by post or proxy.
Voting by post
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.
North Norfolk District Council
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.
How to apply
You can apply online. The deadline to apply to vote by proxy in this election is 5pm on Wednesday 24 April 2024.
You now must show an accepted photo ID to vote at the polling station. These changes have been introduced under the Elections Act 2022.
Your name on the electoral register must match your name on your identity document. You can update your details online at Register to vote - GOV.UK if you have changed your name.
If you do not have any of the accepted forms of ID, you can apply online for a FREE Voter Authority Certificate – this is a photographic identity document used for voting.
You must be registered to vote to apply. The deadline to apply for a Voter Authority Certificate at this election is 5pm on Wednesday 24 April 2024.
