How to vote

You must be on the electoral register to vote.

Voting at a polling station

We will send a poll card to all registered voters about three to four weeks before an election.

The poll card gives details of when and where to vote. You must go to your allocated the polling station.

If you lose your poll card, you can still vote. You just need to give your name and address to the staff on duty. You can also use MyWycombe to find the location of your polling station.

Voting by postal vote

If you vote by post, you will receive a poll card to remind you that you have asked to vote this way.

We usually send postal ballot papers by first class post, about two weeks before polling day to everyone who has applied to vote by post. There will be full instructions on how to vote included with the ballot paper.

You must get postal ballot papers to us by 10pm on polling day. If you are too late for the post, you can take it to our offices or to polling station shown on your polling card and hand it to the staff.
