Upcoming elections

Covid-19 safe voting

We want to make sure that everyone who is entitled to vote is able to do so, regardless of the pandemic. We will be providing more information nearer the time on how you can vote if you need to self-isolate, or live in an area under local lockdown.

We are putting arrangements in place to help ensure polling stations are safe places to vote, but you can choose to apply to vote by post or apply to vote by proxy instead.

In polling stations, you can expect many of the measures you’ve become used to over recent months in shops and banks, such as hand sanitiser, floor markings and face coverings.

You are welcome to bring your own pen or pencil to the polling station if it makes you feel safer and more comfortable.

We will continue our discussions with public health authorities as we prepare for the elections to make sure we are following the most up to date guidance. We will continue to update this page as more information and guidance becomes available.
