Anyone can apply for a postal vote for all elections. The cut-off time for requesting a postal vote is 5pm – 11 working days before the day of the election. Ballot papers will be sent to you no later than 9 working days before polling day.
Please download and complete our Application to vote by post form then scan to firstname.lastname@example.org or return to Electoral Services, Mid Sussex District Council, Oaklands, Oaklands Road, Haywards Heath, RH16 1SS.
The ballot paper can be sent to:
- Your home address
- Any address where you will be staying on the day of the election
Postal votes cannot be sent until after the nomination process has closed and ballot papers have been printed. Postal votes will arrive no earlier than twelve working days before polling day.
If you are abroad – and outside Europe – you may not have enough time to send back your ballot paper before the election. It may be better to use a proxy vote. See below for more information.
