Apply for a postal vote

Anyone who is registered to vote in Manchester can apply to vote by post.

  • For security we need both your signature and your date of birth; these will be matched against the information you provide when you return your postal vote.
  • You can apply for a postal vote for one election, a set period of time or permanently (for a permanent postal vote you must refresh your signature every five years -  we will contact you when it is time to do this.)

Please download a postal vote application form and email your completed form as an attachment to

You can post your completed form to us, but - in line with Covid19 guidance - our team is currently working from home, so it's better if you email if you can. If email isn't an option you can post your completed form to:

You cannot deliver your form in person to this address.
