Can I vote by post or proxy?

The electoral register
The electoral register or electoral roll is a record of everyone who is registered to vote in an election. The Electoral Registration Officer makes and keeps two versions of the electoral register - the full register and the open register. The full electoral register lists everyone who is entitled to vote. The law says who can have a copy of the full register and what they can use it for.
The open register can be bought by anyone who asks for a copy and they may use it for any purpose. You can opt out of your details appearing on the open register. If you want to opt out, please contact:
