You can choose to vote in person at a polling station, to vote by post, or to appoint someone else – a proxy – to vote on your behalf. You can do this for any reason – you do not have to believe that you be away at polling time to apply for a postal or proxy vote.
To apply to vote by post:
- Visit the UK government's official web site at: https://gov.uk.
- From this site, search for "postal vote".
- From the search results, follow the web link for "Apply for a postal vote" or similar.
- Follow the instructions.
