Voting in the Council election

Election 2017

There are three ways to vote in the Council election on 4 May 2017:

  • In person, at our polling places from 7am to 10pm on Thursday 4 May 2017. Your polling place will be detailed on your poll card (which you will receive through the post). 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 4 May 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 South Ayrshire before they close at 10pm on polling day. You can download postal vote registration forms from the Electoral Registration Office website .
  • 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
