Postal voting

Apply for a postal vote

You can apply to vote by post:

  • for a single election on a specific date
  • for a specific period
  • permanently

On the application form you are required to provide your date of birth and your signature. These are used to verify your postal vote statement when you return it, so please ensure they are both correct before returning your application form. Postal votes can be sent to any address, including overseas addresses, but you will need to consider whether there will be enough time to receive and return your ballot paper so it arrives back by 10pm on polling day.

You can scan and email your application form to , or post it to Electoral Services, Oadby & Wigston Borough Council, Station Road, Wigston, Leicestershire, LE18 2DR.
