Once you are registered to vote, there are three differnt ways you can use your vote.

How do I register for postal voting?

Labour has a simple process where you fill in your details online, print it off, sign it and then post it off to the returning officer at West Berkshire Council.


What is a Proxy vote

Voting by proxy means authorising a trusted person to cast your vote for you. This is the method we recommend, because postal voting forms often don’t reach foreign addresses in time to be returned and counted before the polls are closed.

People often ask a family member, neighbour or friend to be a proxy, but anyone can act as your proxy as long as they are registered to vote.

Your proxy can vote in person or by post. If your proxy votes at the same polling station as you would (e.g. a neighbour in UK), check with your Electoral Registration Office (ERO) that your proxy can vote in person – it is easier for them. If you had previously made arrangements to have a postal vote, make sure you cancel it before applying for your proxy.

Alternatively, your proxy can live elsewhere and they can vote by post from anywhere in the UK. If your proxy has to vote for you by post, they must apply to your ERO to vote by post on your behalf. The proxy will be sent a form which they need to fill in and return to the ERO at least 15 days before an election.

Any proxy can vote for 2 people per constituency at the same election, or more if the extra people are close relatives.

You can apply for Proxy vote here. . And then return them to the returning officer at West Berkshire Council.
