How can you return your postal vote?

New rules mean that your postal vote will be rejected if it is not returned correctly.

Please ensure you post your postal vote back as soon as possible to ensure it is delivered in time. If you don't have time to post it back to us, you can hand it in at your local polling station or at the Town Hall, Feethams, Darlington, DL1 5QT.

  • The easiest and most convenient way to return your postal vote is by posting it in a Royal Mail post box using the pre-paid envelope provided (envelope B).
  • Please allow sufficient time for your postal vote to reach us. It must be received by the Returning Officer not later than 10pm on Thursday 2 May 2024.
  • If you are hand delivering your completed postal vote, for example at a polling station or at the Town Hall, you will need to complete a statutory form. The polling station or electoral services staff will help you with this.
  • You may hand deliver your own and no more than 5 other postal votes per election.
  • If you are a campaigner, you can only hand in your own postal vote, and those of close relatives or people for whom you provide regular care.
  • DO NOT leave your postal vote in any Council Office post boxes, reception points or a polling station desk without completing a form as it will be rejected.

New rules mean your postal vote will be rejected if it is not returned correctly - make sure your vote is counted.
