Elections and coronavirus (COVID-19)

Polling stations will be safe places to vote

Arrangements for the elections on 5 May 2022 were carefully reviewed to ensure that voters are safe and able to cast their vote.

To keep everyone safe on polling day, we requested that voters:

  • wore a face covering inside the polling station
  • sanitise their hands using the hand sanitiser provided
  • maintained social distancing at all times
  • brought their own pen or pencil to mark their ballot paper, where possible.

You can vote at your polling station, by post, or by proxy

There are three ways to cast your vote:

  • In person: this means going to the polling station to vote on polling day.
  • By post: this means we will send you a postal voting pack so you can complete your ballot paper at home and return it by post.
  • By proxy: this means appointing a person a vote on your behalf at your polling station.

If you want to vote by post or by proxy, you should apply early

You can apply to vote by post or proxy permanently, or for the elections on 5 May 2022 only.

If you normally vote at your polling station but want to vote by post or proxy, you should apply as early as possible.

You can download an application to vote by post or proxy or contact us by emailing to request one.
