How do I vote?
In the UK, there are three different ways you can vote. How you
vote is up to you. It may depend on what you find easiest or the
most convenient method. Most people vote in person at a polling
station. However, if you are not able to go to the polling station
in person on election day, you can apply to vote by post or by
proxy (someone voting on your behalf).
