Deadline To Apply For A Postal Vote In UK Election

10th June 2024

The deadline to apply for a postal vote in the Parliamentary general election is 5pm on Wednesday 19 June. You must also be registered to vote by 11:59pm on Tuesday 18 June.

Elections Act changes
There are changes to voting by post. The changes apply to UK Parliament general elections, by-elections and recall petitions.

You can apply online to vote by post and need to prove your identity when applying. You also need to reapply for a postal vote every three years.

If you have a long-term postal vote that you applied for before 31 October 2023, this will now expire on 31 January 2026. Your local electoral registration office will contact you before your postal vote expires.

The changes do not apply to Scottish Parliament or council elections in Scotland.
