Bins not been emptied? We do apologise, but due to changes to our waste collection services the crews are finding they are not able to make it to some properties on the right day. We are working to address this. If your bin hasn't been emptied, check our webpage to see if you live in an area we know about and, if so, please just leave your bin out. You do not need to report it to us. We are doing everything we can to return to your property in the following day or two. You can also find out more about the changes to our bin collections and check your bin day with our online calendar.
Postal and proxy voting
If you cannot make it to the polling station you can also vote by post or by appointing a proxy.
To do so you will have to provide your date of birth and a copy of their signature.
You have to be registered to vote before applying for a postal or proxy vote. If you are not registered then do so now.
Anyone who is on the electoral register can apply for a postal vote.
You can have your ballot paper delivered to your registered address or, provided you can supply us with a reason, an alternative address.
You can also appoint someone to vote on your behalf. This is known as a proxy vote.
If you choose to vote by proxy for a particular election you are required to give a reason e.g. illness, disability, employment, attendance on a course etc.
If you choose to vote by proxy for all elections you will need to give a reason and get someone to support your application.
The people who are qualified to support your application appear under part 6a of the application form.
Where to send these forms?
