Parliamentary elections are taking place on Thursday 4 July 2024.

Both elections now use the first-past-the-post voting system. This means everyone votes for one candidate, and the candidate with the most votes wins the election.

Register to vote

You must be registered to vote before you can vote in these elections. You can register to vote on the government website. The deadline to register is midnight on Tuesday 18 June 2024.

If you cannot register online, call Electoral Services on 01642 729771 and we'll arrange a paper application for you.

Ways to vote

Voting in person

You can see where your polling station is on your poll card, which will be sent to you before the election. You can also check the Where Do I Vote website.

Polling stations are open from 7am to 10pm.

You'll need a valid form of photo ID to vote in person. You can see the accepted forms of ID on the Electoral Commission website.

If you do not have a valid photo ID, you'll need to apply for a Voter Authority Certificate (VAC). You'll need to do this before before 5pm on Wednesday 26 June 2024.

You can find out more on the voting in person page.

Voting by post or by proxy

If you want to vote by post in these elections, you must apply before 5pm on Wednesday 26 June 2024. You can find out more on the postal voting page.

Voting by proxy means someone you trust will vote on your behalf. It's a convenient way of voting if you cannot get to the polling station. To register for a proxy vote, call Electoral Services on 01642 729771 before 5pm on Wednesday 26 June 2024. You can find out more on the proxy voting page.
