Postal vote

How can I vote by post?

By law we need a signed application form to allow a postal vote.

You can email us at or call 0161 793 2500 with your name and full address, including postcode and we can post a form to you.

Or, you can download and print the postal application form below, complete it fully and sign it. You can then post it back to us free, or scan and send it if you can or take a clear photo and email that to us. Details of the address to post it to are below.

To set up a postal vote you need to first be registered to vote. If you are not registered or you are not sure if you are, you can register online on the GOV.UK website. Alternatively, you can call our contact centre on 0161 793 2500 and they can tell you if you are registered and advise further.

When you are registered for postal voting, this means that any ballot papers for the elections will be sent to you via the postal service a couple of weeks before election day and you return them the same way in a pre-paid envelope included with your postal pack.

If you forget to send your postal vote back in time, you can hand deliver it to any polling station in Salford before 10pm on Thursday 4 May 2023.

If you haven’t received your postal pack ten days before the election, please contact our customer contact centre on 0161 793 2500 during office hours.

How to return your postal vote form

You can either email a scanned image of the form or a clear photograph, showing the full page, to, or post to our Freepost address:

Electoral Registration Officer
Salford Civic Centre
Chorley Road
M27 5DA
