How to vote

Apply for a postal vote

You can choose to vote by post because you might not be able to get to your polling station on the day of election or because it's more convenient.

Postal vote packs are usually sent out about 10 to 15 working days before polling day. They must be completed and returned by 10pm on polling day.

If you will be away from home during an election and would like a postal vote, make sure there is enough time for you to receive and return your ballot paper by polling day.

You can hold a postal vote for a maximum period of 3 years and would then need to reapply. Complete a new postal vote application whenever you change your address or name (as your signature may change).

You can also download a paper application form which can be posted or handed into Electoral Services, North Northamptonshire Council, Municipal Offices, Bowling Green Road, Kettering, NN15 7QX.

To vote by post, you must be registered to vote and have submitted your application by 5pm, 11 working days before polling day.
