Postal Vote FAQs

What can I do if I forgot to post my postal vote?

If you have forgotten to post your postal vote in time for it to arrive on election day (5 May) then don’t worry! You can just take it to a polling station in your area, or the town hall, before 10pm on election day. Find your nearest polling station here: http://www.sadiq.london/where_is_my_polling_station. You need to make sure you have completed it and sealed the envelope before handing it in.

 

What can I do if I have lost my postal vote or it didn’t arrive?

If you have misplaced your postal vote or it hasn’t arrived yet, don’t worry! You can get a replacement, in person, from your Returning Officer up until 5pm on election day.

If you don’t know where to find your returning officer, visit: http://www.aboutmyvote.co.uk and enter your postcode. You may need to prove your identity so please bring some photo ID (e.g. your passport) with you.

 

What can I do if I have made a mistake when filling in my postal vote?

If you have ‘spoiled’ your postal vote, i.e. made a mistake when filling it in, then don’t worry! You can get a replacement, in person, from your Returning Officer up until 5pm on election day. You will also need to return your ‘spoiled’ postal vote paper (along with everything which came in the envelope with it). Speak to your Returning Officer about this.
