Apply to vote by proxy online 

Overseas Electors

Given the short timescales involved in producing and sending postal voting packs for elections, and given that Postal Votes cannot be printed until after candidate nominations close on the 7 June, it is not always possible to guarantee delivery and return from an overseas location in time to be counted. We therefore strongly recommend that overseas electors apply to vote by proxy, nominating someone who is able to attend their Milton Keynes polling station to vote on their behalf. 

Voter ID   

Last year, the UK Government introduced a requirement for voters to show photo ID when voting at a polling station at some elections. This new requirement will again apply at the general election on 4 July. 

Please visit our dedicated Voter ID page here to check which forms of ID you can use to vote and what to do if you don’t have an accepted form of photo ID.   

Polling stations will be open from 7am – 10pm. A list of Polling Stations and the Democracy Club Polling Station Finder will appear here closer to the election.    

If you’re worried about going to a polling station, or can’t get to one, you can now apply for a postal vote online or appoint a proxy online to vote on your behalf at your allocated polling station.  

Please bear in mind that postal votes cannot be printed until after candidates are confirmed and ballot papers printed. This means that it is not always possible for postal votes to reach addresses that are not local in time for them to be returned by 4 July, especially for those who have not already set up a postal vote.  

Voter Authority Certificate Dates  

The final deadline to apply for a Voter Authority Certificate is Wednesday 26 June (5pm).
