Postal vote

How can I vote by post?

By law we need a signed application form to allow a postal vote. To vote by post in the city council, Salford Mayor and Mayor of Greater Manchester elections on Thursday 6 May, please apply by 5pm on Tuesday 20 April 2021.

You can email us at elections@salford.gov.uk 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.

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 elections@salford.gov.uk, or post to our Freepost address:
