Voting by Post or Proxy
If you are not going to be able to visit a polling station on polling day to cast your vote then you can make alternative arrangements to vote by post or proxy (where someone is appointed to vote on your behalf). More information on voting by post or proxy including application forms is available or alternatively you can contact the elections office on 01633 644212 or email email@example.com.
Postal votes will be dispatched in two tranches. Any elector who had registered for a postal vote before Friday 6 May 2016 will receive their postal vote around the 3 June 2016. Any elector applying to vote by post after Friday 6 May 2016 should expect to receive their postal vote around Thursday 16 June 2016. You will need to consider these dates when applying for a postal vote to ensure you receive your postal ballot paper should you be away on holiday.
Applications for voting by post must be submitted accurately by 5pm on the 8 June 2016.

A guide on how to complete your postal vote is included with your postal vote.
If you do not receive your postal vote, a replacement cannot be issued until Friday 17th June 2016. We would recommend you visit County Hall, Usk to obtain a replacement postal vote rather than rely on another to be posted to you given how close to polling day it is.
