How to vote in elections

Before you can vote in the UK you need to register to vote. Your name and address will then appear on the electoral register.

You can vote at a polling station, by post or by proxy – where someone votes on your behalf.

We make sure that postal and proxy voting is secure. We compare the signature and date of birth of everyone who votes in this way against security statements completed by postal voters.

Some exemptions may apply to voters with a disability, or because they can’t read or write.
