Once you have registered to vote, you may want to register for an early vote (postal vote) for the May elections. Whether you’re working from home, juggling work and childcare or working shifts on the frontline, the safest and easiest way to have your say is to vote by post.
Follow this link: https://postalvote.labour.org.uk/tu, fill in your details, print, sign and post your form to register. If you don’t have a printer, you can choose to be sent a printed form in the post to sign and return.
If you are registered to vote in England or Wales, your application form must arrive at your local Electoral Registration Office by 20 April at 5pm if you wish to vote by post on 6 May 2021 – so get it sorted today if you can!
Please note that the postal vote deadline in Scotland has passed. You can still apply for a proxy vote in Scotland.
