Household notification letter

We send household notification letters to all residential properties to ensure the records we hold are correct. The letter lists individuals who are currently registered to vote at your address.

There is no need to respond to the household notification letter, unless voter details at your address have changed.

Apply for a postal or proxy vote

If you are unable to get to your polling station to vote in the elections on 4 May 2023 or would just prefer to vote another way, you can request a postal or a proxy (someone to vote on your behalf) application form.
