Covid-19 and postal voting

We are currently making provisions to ensure that voting at polling stations will be as safe as possible during the current Covid-19 situation.

However, should you have any concerns about voting in person, please be aware that you can set up a postal vote to receive your ballot papers via the postal service, instead of attending a polling station.

How to set up postal voting

To request a postal vote please download the form at the bottom of this webpage, complete your information including name, address, date of birth and your signature where prompted, and return to us.

How to return your form

You can either email a scanned image of the form or a clear photograph, showing the full page, to elections@salford.gov.uk, or post to our Freepost address:

Electoral Registration Officer
