3. Postal voting

If you are registered to vote and cannot vote at your polling station, you can apply for a postal vote.

You can return your completed application by email by sending a copy of the completed form to absentvoting@teignbridge.gov.uk - it must be completed in pen.

You can apply for a postal vote up to 11 working days before an election.

Postal ballot packs will be sent to electors in advance of an election (usually 8 working days before polling day) and, upon the return of the completed ballot paper, the vote will be included with those cast at polling stations.

Remember - if you have a postal vote you won't be able to vote at the polling station, even if you do not use your postal vote.

If you wish to cancel your postal vote, please complete and return the form below.
