Ways to vote

Most people vote at their local polling station. You can also vote by post or by proxy.

Vote at a polling station

Your polling station will usually be your local school or community centre. The polling stations are usually open from 7am to 10pm on election day.

Vote by post

You can apply to vote by post if you aren't able to get to the polling station on election day.

You can't vote at a polling station if you've applied to vote by post, but you can give your postal vote in by hand if you haven't already sent it in.

Vote by proxy

Proxy voting means appointing somebody else to vote for you on your behalf if you can't get to your polling station. You must both be registered to vote but your proxy doesn't have to live in Royal Greenwich.

Your proxy will be sent a proxy poll card, telling them where and when to vote. You must let your proxy know which candidate or party you want them to vote for on your behalf.
