Making polling stations a safe place to visit

We are putting arrangements in place to help ensure polling stations are safe place to vote.

You can expect many of the measures you've become used to in recent months in shops and banks, such as hand sanitiser, screening, one-way systems, floor markings and face coverings.

You may be asked to queue outside the polling station so that staff can monitor the number of people in the premises at one time. You can also bring along your own pen or pencil.

Proxy voting

If you are shielding, vulnerable or would just prefer not to go to the polling station, you can apply for  a proxy vote (where someone votes on your behalf). The deadline for a postal vote has now passed.

You must be registered to vote to apply for a proxy vote (so must your proxy).

You can download a proxy vote form. Once you have completed the form and signed it, you need to send it to the Electoral Team via:
