Postal votes

The deadline for applying for a postal vote is 5pm on Wednesday 19 June 2024. Please note: due to the short timescale for this election to be held, if you live abroad, your postal vote may not arrive back with us in time to be counted. If you are living abroad, you might want to consider appointing a proxy (someone you trust) to vote on your behalf either in person or by post (see below for more information).

Overseas voter registration

British and eligible Irish citizens living overseas can now register to vote in UK general elections no matter how long ago they left or were last registered. There’s no longer a 15-year limit.

They’ll be registered at the constituency where they were last registered to vote, or where they lived if they weren’t registered.

For more information, visit the Electoral Commission website.
