Residents are advised of some important deadlines in the run-up to the General Election on 12 December, when people in Daventry District will be casting their votes to elect an MP for the Daventry Parliamentary constituency.
Voting in person
Polling stations will be open from 7am to 10pm on Thursday 12 December. If you are registered to vote you should by now have received a card with details of your local polling station.
You can also check your polling station by inputting your postcode in our online mapping system
When voting at a polling station, it is helpful to take your polling card with you, 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.
When you arrive at the polling station, staff will ask you to present your poll card and/or confirm details of your name and address. They will then issue you with a ballot paper for the Parliamentary election. In order to be issued with a ballot paper you must have arrived at the polling station by 10pm.
Voting by post
Postal votes must be received by the Returning Officer by 10pm on Thursday, 12 December. If you have left it too late to post, please drop it off at your polling station or at our Council offices in Lodge Road, Daventry, NN11 4FP.
Arranging a proxy vote
The deadline for arranging a proxy vote (where you appoint someone to vote on your behalf) was 5pm on Wednesday 4 December. However if you fall ill or are called away on business after this date you may be able to apply for a proxy vote up to 5pm on 12 December. Apply for a proxy vote by emailing email@example.com
