Local Elections 2019
On Thursday 2 May, people over the age of 18 will be able to vote in local elections in the Vale of White Horse.
You will be able to vote for a district councillor and, in some places, you will also get to vote for a town or parish councillor.
To vote on 2 May, you need to be registered by Friday 12 April. Anyone who isn’t registered at their current address should visit gov.uk/register-to-vote to ensure they are eligible to vote.
If you registered to vote by 8 March 2019, you should receive their poll card by Monday 8 April – if you don’t receive it by this date please call the Elections team on 01235 422528 to make sure you are registered.
If you registered to vote between 9 March and the cut-off date of 12 April you should receive your poll card during the week commencing Monday 15 April.
If you wish to vote by post, the Elections team must receive your application by 5pm on Monday 15 April – application forms are available at whitehorsedc.gov.uk/elections.
Everybody who applies for a postal vote should receive their ballot pack by Wednesday 26 April – if it doesn’t arrive by this date postal you should contact the Elections team on 01235 422528 to request a replacement.
If you, or someone you know, are not able to make it to the polling station on election day, or are not able to vote by post beforehand, then you can apply for someone to vote on your behalf – this is called a ‘Proxy vote’.
To vote by proxy in the upcoming local elections, applications need to reach our Elections team by 5pm on Wednesday 24 April – see whitehorsedc.gov.uk/votebyproxy for details.
