To vote in the elections - either at a polling station, by post, or by appointing someone you trust to vote on your behalf as your proxy - you must first be registered to vote.
If you are not currently registered, this can be done online in just five minutes. You can register at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote
To then apply to vote by post you need to download, print and complete a postal vote application form. Once you have completed the form and signed it, you need to send it to the Electoral Services Team at Dacorum Borough Council, or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re thinking about voting by post, you can apply to do this now. This will make sure your application is processed early, and your postal vote can be sent to you more quickly once the candidates for the elections are confirmed.
If you aren't able to cast your vote in person, you can ask someone you trust to cast your vote for you. This is called a proxy vote and the person casting your vote is often referred to as your proxy. The person voting on your behalf can either go to
your polling station to cast your vote, or can apply to vote for you by post.
To apply for a proxy vote, complete and return the form to vote by proxy, explaining why you can't get to your polling station in person.
