Voting at a polling station

Polling stations will be open from 7am to 10pm on Thursday, 23 May.

When voting at a polling station, it is helpful to take your polling card, but if you don’t have it you can still vote. The only exception to this rule is anonymous electors, who must present their poll cards in order to vote.

Polling station staff will give you ballot papers for the election, provided they have arrived at the polling station by 10pm.

Postal votes 

Postal votes must be received by the Returning Officer by 10pm on Thursday, 23 May. Anyone who has left it too late to post can drop it off at their polling station or at Daventry District Council, Lodge Road, Daventry, NN11 4FP.

Proxy votes 

the deadline (15 May) has now passed for proxy vote applications. However if an elector falls ill or is called away on business, they may be able to apply up to 5pm on 23 May. For enquiries, email electoralservices@daventrydc.gov.uk or call 01327 871100
