Voting by post
Borough Council Elections
If you want to vote by post in the Borough Council Elections taking place on Thursday 3 May, you must submit your postal vote application by 5pm on Wednesday 18 April.
If you plan to be away from your postal pack delivery address and will not be back before polling day, we strongly advise that you vote by proxy as we cannot guarantee that your pack will arrive in time for you to complete and return.
Apply for postal vote
If you are returning your application close to a deadline, you should send a clear, scanned version by email to ensure it reaches us on time.
You are required to provide your:
- date of birth
- address you want the ballot paper to be sent to, if different from the address at which you are registered to vote, and state the reason for this
This information is required by law and for the security of your postal vote, and your application will not be accepted without this.
Problems providing a signature
You may not be required to provide a signature if:
- you are unable to sign in a consistent or distinctive way because of a disability
- you are unable to read or write
Delivery of postal vote packs
Your postal vote pack will be delivered to the address specified in your application. We cannot deliver this to you early or allow you to collect this from us.
Return your postal vote pack
Completed postal vote packs must be received by 10pm on polling day.
You can post this back, drop it off at the Town Hall or return it on polling day by 10pm to a polling station in Wandsworth.
Change of voting method
You will not be able to vote in person at a polling station once you have applied to vote by post, unless you cancel your postal vote facility.
