What is postal voting?
If you are unable to attend at your polling station to cast your vote or do not wish to go to the polling station, you can have your ballot paper sent to you.
If you are a registered elector in the city of Southampton you may apply to vote by post at any time during the year. However, on the occasion of an election, the application must be delivered to Electoral Services no later than the deadline published on the relevant election timetable.
Postal ballot papers are usually sent out 7-10 days before the day of election.
