When you will receive your ballot paper

After the deadline to become a candidate has passed (approximately three weeks before polling day), ballot papers are produced and printed. Yours will then be sent to you, in your postal voting pack.

Once you receive your postal voting pack, make sure to keep it somewhere safe. Don't let anyone else handle it, and avoid leaving it where someone else could pick it up.

How to cancel your postal vote

If you want to cancel your postal vote then you should contact us as soon as possible by email (electoral.services@easthants.gov.uk) to request this. You must do so before 5pm, 11 working days before the election you will be voting in.

If you have already returned your completed postal vote, then you will not be able to cancel it for that election.
