Apply now for a postal vote for this year's local elections

On Thursday 6 May 2021, Islanders will go to the polls to have their say on who represents them at the Isle of Wight Council, town, parish and community council and police and crime commissioner elections.

If you are thinking about voting by post, you can apply to do this now.

To vote in the elections - either at a polling station, by post, or by appointing someone you trust to vote on your behalf as your proxy - you must first be registered to vote, which can be done online in just five minutes.

To then apply to vote by post you need to download, print and fill out a postal vote application form. Once you have completed the form and signed it, you need to send it to Electoral Services, County Hall, Newport, Isle of Wight, PO30 1UD.

To request a postal vote application form e-mail electoral.services@iow.gov.uk or call (01983) 823380.

The deadline to apply for a postal vote and cancel or make changes to a current postal or proxy vote at this election is 5pm on 20 April 2021.

Any residents who have any questions can contact the Isle of Wight Council electoral registration team at https://www.iow.gov.uk/Council/Elections/Electoral-Registration/Contact or via electoral.services@iow.gov.uk
