Do you have a vote?

Postal or proxy vote? Plus... who's standing on 6th May


Hatley letter box with postal vote envelope.

You can only vote in elections (or a referendum) if your name appears on the register of electors.

To register in time for an election, you must register at least 12 working days before the poll…

  • Which is 19th April for this year’s local elections on 6th May
  • This year, our elections are for the county council, Mayor and Police and Crime Commissioner.

Being registered, there are three ways you can vote:

    1. At a polling station (for us it’s Hatley Village Hall) on Thursday, 6th May – because of Covid restrictions, you should take your own pen or pencil and wear a mask inside the polling station (unless you have a valid exemption).
    2. With a postal vote.  If you have already registered for a postal vote, you will automatically receive your voting papers on / around 20th April.  If you haven’t registered and wish to have a postal vote, simply use this link on the South Cambs District Council’s website, from where you can make your application.  You must apply by 5.00 pm on 20th April (11 working days in advance of polling day).
    3. With a proxy vote, when you appoint someone to visit your polling station on your behalf.  You must apply by 5.00 pm on 28th April. (5 working days in advance of polling day).

All this is explained in more detail on our Do you have a vote? page.
