PR2106/MF/MF - 19/05/2017

If you are not able to vote in person in the General Election on 8 June 2017 it is important that you arrange a postal or proxy vote before the deadline to still have your say.

If you are unable to get to the polling station but would still like to vote you can download a postal or proxy vote application form online at www.midsussex.gov.uk/electoralservices. Alternatively you can contact the Mid Sussex District Council Electoral Services Team by calling 01444 477003.

The deadline for postal vote applications is 5pm on Tuesday 23 May 2017.

The deadline for proxy vote applications is 5pm on Wednesday 31 May 2017.

In order to arrange postal or proxy votes you must already be a registered to vote.

A proxy is somebody who goes to the polling station and votes on behalf of the registered elector. Residents who wish to appoint a proxy voter must explain why the proxy is required and if proxy voting is chosen for all future elections then evidence must be provided to support the application. Proxy voters who need to change the address to which their ballot paper is sent or need to change the details of their nominated proxy must contact the Electoral Services Team before Tuesday 23 May 2017.

If you have any questions regarding your registration or the electoral process please contact the Mid Sussex District Council Electoral Services Team on 01444 477003, or email elections@midsussex.gov.uk.
