Changes to the way we vote

voting changes


It’s the Police and Crime Commission elections on Thursday 2 May, are you ready to vote? 

If you are voting on 2 May or in any upcoming elections, there are some new rules for postal votes and proxy so take a look below at what's new...

  • There are changes to how you vote online by post or by proxy
  • Your identity will be checked as part of the application process. Both online and paper applications will need ID verification (except for emergency proxy votes)
  • There is now a limit to the amount of people you can be proxy for. You  can act as a proxy for two people.
  • If you vote on behalf of UK voters who live overseas, you can act as a proxy for up to four people (but only two of those can live in the UK)
  • More detailed information will be coming in the next few weeks giving more information on each of these different changes.

In the meantime, you can find out more on the Electoral Commission website
