Important Information and Frequently asked questions:

Postal Vote Issue Dates:

Because of the short notice of this election and the fact that the candidate list will not be finalised until 14 November, the postal vote issue dates shown above will be later than usual.  If you are travelling or living overseas, please make sure that you will have sufficient time to receive, complete and return the postal pack before the close of the poll.  A proxy vote may be more appropriate for electors living or travelling overseas.

I am Citizen of an EU member state other than the UK, IE, MT or CY, can I vote?

No you will not be able to vote at this election.

I am 16 or 17 on polling day, will I be able to vote?

No you will not be able to vote unless you are 18 on or before polling day.

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).

Where do I vote?

The most common method of voting is by casting your vote personally in a Polling Station.  There are a number of Polling Stations within the District of Hart, often they are located at the local village hall, school, church hall or at a public building.

Find your polling station for the next election. This takes you to an external organisation who are responsible for the information provided.

Polling Stations are chosen to be as convenient as possible for the electorate, with access for people with disabilities being a significant factor. Provisions are made for the disabled such as providing ramps up stairs or guides to assist voters. Please follow the link for further information on the assistance available to disabled voters.

However, we recognise that there are still some voters who will be unable to go to their Polling Station on the day of the election. If this is the case these voters may wish to consider voting by post or proxy.

The situation of our Polling Stations does remain under regular review and any changes will be posted on this website.
