If you want to have your say and vote in this election, you need to make sure you have registered to vote with the Elections Office by no later than Tuesday 5 August and you can do this quickly online at https://www.gov.uk/register-to-vote. If you have any doubt as to whether you are on the register you need to check with the Elections Office as soon as possible. If you are not registered, then you cannot vote.
If you are unable to attend a polling station to vote in person due to holidays, or for any other reason, you can apply for a postal vote by 6 August at the latest but you must already be registered to vote. Alternatively you can appoint a proxy (someone who can vote on your behalf) and the deadline for appointing a proxy is 13 August. Again to appoint a proxy you must already be registered to vote.
