When will I receive my polling card?

Poll cards will be sent out around 11 November 2019 to anyone registered to vote by 31 October. Anyone registered after that date will receive a poll card later on. If you have received a poll card you do not need to re-register.

We have had a number of queries relating to the poll cards that have been received by electors. Above the ‘your details’ section there is a code showing different address details, this a walksort code that is used by Royal Mail for delivering and is always included when poll cards are sent by post. This should be ignored as does not relate to the electoral register or an electors record. We would normally hand deliver poll cards so the code would not show, but due to the short notice of the election that is why the poll cards have been posted via Royal Mail.

Postal votes will be sent out first class around 27 November 2019 to anyone who has a postal vote arrangement in place by 7 November 2019. The final batch of postal votes will be sent out around 3 December 2019.
