A postal vote allows you to vote by post before the date of an election, and is useful if you know you are not going to be able to get to the polling station on election day. We will post your ballot paper(s) and identification form to your home between 5 and 11 days before election day, and you need to get them to us by 10pm on the date of the election.
If you do not already have a postal vote and wish to apply for one for the Election of Mayor for the West Midlands Combined Authority on 4 May 2017 then you need to apply by 5pm on Tuesday 18 April 2017.
If you would like to apply for a postal vote, you can apply to vote by post.
On the application form you are required to provide your date of birth and your signature. These will be used to verify your ballot paper when you return it, so please ensure they are both correct before returning your application form. You can scan and email your application to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you've forgotten to post your postal vote, you can drop it off at any polling station in your Ward on election day, or at the Council House. We need to receive your postal vote by 10pm on the date of the election.
