How to vote

If you are not yet registered to vote, the deadline to submit your application is midnight on Tuesday 28 June 2022. You can register to vote on GOV.UK. See register to vote for further information.

There are three ways you can vote.

In person at your polling station

Poll cards will be sent to all registered electors in the Tooting Broadway Ward before polling day. The poll card will contain details of your designated polling station. You do not have to take your poll card with you to the polling station, but it will help staff if you do.

Polling stations will be open from 7am to 10pm on Thursday 14 July 2022. Staff at the polling station can help you understand your ballot paper if required.

If you cannot go to the polling station in person, you can apply to vote by post or by proxy.

By post

Your ballot paper will be sent to you in advance of election day. Mark your vote and return so it arrives before 10pm on Thursday 14 July 2022. You must remember to complete the security declaration with your signature and date of birth.

If you do not get your vote back in time, it will not be counted. If you have forgotten to post it, you can take your completed postal vote (in the envelope provided) to a polling station in the ward on Thursday 14 July 2022 between 7am and 10pm.

The deadline for receiving new postal vote applications and for changes to existing postal or proxy votes is 5pm on Wednesday 29 June 2022See vote by post for further information.

By proxy

If you are not able to get to your polling station you can ask someone you trust to be your proxy. This means they can vote on your behalf, but you will need to tell them who you want to vote for.

The deadline for receiving new applications to vote by proxy (not postal proxy or emergency proxies) is 5pm on Wednesday 6 July 2022.

See vote by proxy for further information.

Your proxy will need to attend your designated polling station unless they have successfully applied for a postal proxy vote by 5pm on Wednesday 29 June 2022. See postal proxy for further information.

The deadline for receiving emergency proxy applications is 5pm on Thursday 14 July 2022. See emergency proxy for further information.
