Ways to vote

Vote in person, by post or by proxy

Most people choose to vote in person on the day of the election at their polling station.

If you can't vote in person, visit Absent voting - voting by post or proxy on the Lothian Valuation Joint Board website:

  • for a postal vote
  • for someone to vote on your behalf, known as a proxy vote.

You can now apply on the GOV.UK website for a postal vote for UK Westminster general elections.
