Anyone who is not registered to vote should visit www.gov.uk/register-to-vote or call 0131 344 2500. Please make sure you have your National Insurance number to hand.  If you wish to vote without attending a polling station on Thursday 12 December then you can request a postal or a proxy vote. The deadline for postal vote applications is 5pm on Tuesday 26 November, and the deadline for applying to vote by proxy is 5pm on Wednesday 4 December.

Anyone can apply to vote by post. You don't need to give a reason. Find out how to apply for a postal vote by visiting https://www.lothian-vjb.gov.uk/wp-content/uploads/Documents/Electoral_Forms/Postal_Forms/19-FORM-Postal_Vote.pdf

If you are unable to vote in person you can get someone to vote for you, and tell them who to vote for. This is called a proxy vote.

You can ask anyone to act as your proxy, as long as they are registered to vote and it's for a type of election they're allowed to vote in. If you require a proxy vote you should visit https://www.lothian-vjb.gov.uk/wp-content/uploads/Documents/Electoral_Forms/Proxy_Forms/19-Form-App_Proxy_Vote-Particular_Election.pdf for further information.

Only British Citizens aged 18 and over can vote in this election.
