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.
If you will not be able to receive, complete and return your postal ballot within this time, and are unable to vote in person at your polling station, you can apply to vote by proxy.
