Upcoming elections

There are a number of elections taking place on 6 May 2021:


To vote in the elections, you must first be registered to vote - you can register to vote online in just 5 minutes. The deadline for voter registration applications is 19 April 2021 for this election. 

You can then vote in the following ways:

  • in a polling station
  • vote by post (application deadline is 5pm on 20 April 2021, including changes/cancellations)
  • appoint someone you trust to vote on your behalf, known as a proxy vote (application deadline 5pm on 27 April 2021).

The first batch of postal vote packs will be posted on 19 April 2021 for applications received by 8 April. For postal vote applications received after 8 April 2021, the postal vote packs will be posted on 26 April. When you receive your postal vote pack please note the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioners pack is combined with the Staffordshire County Council election, but there will be individual postal vote packs for the district, parish and Burntwood Planning Referendum. All documents must be returned for your vote to be valid. Please do not mix up documents between packs.
