Voting in the UK parliamentary election

There are three ways to vote in the UK parliamentary election on 8 June 2017.

  • In person, at our polling places from 7am to 10pm on Thursday 8 June 2017. Your polling place will be detailed on your poll card (which you will receive through the post as long as you are registered to vote). You don’t need your poll card to vote. You can find your polling place using our property search.
  • By post – as long as you have registered for a postal vote. Your vote must be received by 10pm on Thursday 8 June 2017 or it won’t be counted – if you leave it too late to post your vote back to us, you can hand it in to any polling place within the relevant constituency only before they close at 10pm on polling day. You can download postal vote registration forms from the Electoral Registration Office website or at www.aboutmyvote.co.uk.
  • By proxy – where you trust someone else to cast your vote on your behalf. You must be registered for a proxy vote to do this. You can download proxy vote registration forms from the Electoral Registration Office website or at www.aboutmyvote.co.uk .

Your ballot paper will list the name and address of each candidate standing for election. Their party name and logo will also be included, where appropriate. If they are not standing for a party, it will say “independent”.

To vote, you must put one cross (X) next to the one candidate that you wish to vote for.
