How to apply to Vote by Post in Cambridge, 2021

‘Voting from home’ with a postal vote is going to be very popular in Cambridge this year. But you need to request that postal vote in advance!

Instead of voting for just one councillor, this May we’ll all be asked to vote for up to six different candidates in four different elections. It’ll take a lot more consideration, which you might think will be better done from home.

What’s more, although polling stations are being made virus safe, it’s quite possible that many of us won’t want to visit them, or are advised to stay at home. For those two reasons, ‘voting from home’ with a postal vote is going to be very popular this year.

IMPORTANT: If you’re not in Cambridge, and are looking for an application form, please see the Government’s site here.

  • To apply for your postal vote in Cambridge, click on the form below to open the single-page “Application to Vote by Post” form.
