Polling cards for the General Election will be dropping through people's letterboxes in the next few days — and Cheshire East Council is urging people to 'act sooner rather than later' if they require a postal vote.
The deadline to apply for a postal vote is 5pm on Tuesday 26 November. Completed forms must be received by the Cheshire East Council elections team before this deadline.
Postal vote packs will then be issued around 27 November to registered voters who requested them.
Register to vote
The deadline to register to vote is also Tuesday 26 November and Cheshire East Council is actively supporting the Electoral Commission's drive to boost voter registration.
Remember: If you're not registered and therefore can't vote — you haven't got a voice.
So, if you are not registered, you could miss out on being able to vote in the upcoming election.
Polling cards are being posted to registered electors. If you have not received your polling card by Monday 18 November, you should contact the council by ringing 0300 123 5016 to ensure you are registered to vote.
Alternatively, if you are not already registered, you can register to vote via the government's Gov.UK website at: www.gov.uk/registertovote
The deadline to apply for a proxy vote, where a voter nominates a trusted person to cast a vote on their behalf, is 5pm, Wednesday 4 December. Completed forms must be received by the Cheshire East Council elections team before this deadline.
