Applying for a Postal or Special Vote through the Supplement to the Register

While you are ordinarily required to vote in person at a designated polling station, you may be able to register to vote by post or by other means in certain circumstances. If the register of electors has already been published for the year and you are not included you may be able to apply to the supplement to the register and still be able to vote. Applying to do so through the supplement to the register requires you to complete separate forms to those used when applying for inclusion on the register of electors. Access to the required forms is provided below.
