 Elections - voting 


In person 

 

You can vote at your designated polling station from 7am to 10pm on Polling Day.

Please ensure you check your poll card for the correct address – this will be on your polling card that will be sent out to you a few weeks before the elections. 


You can also view your designated polling station by inputting your postcode into our online mapping system or phone 01327 871100 for more details. If you lose or forget your poll card you will still be able to vote without it, but it is easier if you have it with you.

 

Postal Votes 

 

To be able to vote by post you must be registered under the new Individual Electoral Registration system.

 

You can apply for a postal vote application form to enable you to vote by post. You can apply for a one-off postal vote in advance of any election or, alternatively, you can have an automatic postal vote, either on a permanent basis or for a set period. In order to vote by post people must be aged 18 or over, on the electoral register and need to complete a Postal Vote Application Form and return it to Daventry District Council’s Electoral Registration Officer.

 

For more information or an application form please phone our helpdesk on 01327 871100 or email us at electoralservices@daventrydc.gov.uk. Alternatively you can use the following link to access our self service Postal Vote Application.  Follow the instructions on the screen to submit your request. 



Proxy votes

 

As an alternative to voting by post, you can appoint someone to vote on your behalf at the relevant Polling Station. This is called a proxy vote.  You can apply for a proxy vote for a definite or indefinite time period or just for one election.  In order to vote by proxy people must be aged 18 or over, registered under the new Individual Electoral Registration system and need to complete an Application Form and return it to Daventry District Council’s Electoral Registration Officer.

 

For more information or an application form please phone our helpdesk on 01327 871100 or email us at electoralservices@daventrydc.gov.uk. Alternatively you can use the following link to access our self service Proxy Vote Application.  Follow the instructions on the screen to submit your request.
