You can vote in an election in one of three ways (you will need to be registered to vote first).

Voting at the polling station

If you are registered to vote, you will receive a polling card around one month before the date of the election.

On the day of the election, go to the polling station specified on your polling card, any time between 7am and 10pm.

You will be asked to confirm your name and address, or you can hand in your polling card. You don’t need your polling card to vote though, so don’t worry if you lose it or forget to take it with you.

You will be given a ballot paper. Put an ‘X’ next to the name of the candidate you wish to vote for. Do not put any other marks on the ballot paper, or your vote may not be counted.

Voting by post

Anyone who is registered to vote can request to vote by post, instead of going to a polling station.

If you wish to vote by post you will need to complete an application form. This is available on the Electoral Commission website.

Once you have completed this form you will need to print and return it to us at the following address: Electoral Services, The Guildhall, Wrexham, LL11 1AY.

If you don't have access to a printer, then you can email electoral@wrexham.gov.uk to request that we post an application form to you.

Voting by proxy

A proxy vote means that you choose someone you trust to vote on your behalf if you are unable to vote in person.

Anyone who is registered to vote can request to vote by proxy (but you will need to provide a reason why you can't get to your polling station in person). If you wish to vote by proxy you will need to complete an application form. This is available on the Electoral Commission website.

Once you have completed this form you will need to print and return it to us at the following address: Electoral Services, The Guildhall, Wrexham, LL11 1AY.

If you don't have access to a printer, then you can email electoral@wrexham.gov.uk to request that we post an application form to you.
