Did you know that anyone who is eligible to vote in the General Election on June 8 (if you've not yet registered, it's not too late - here's how to do that) can apply to get a postal vote?
Anyone can apply to vote by post - you don't need to give a reason. It can certainly help if you're likely to be away on the day, or maybe the hours you work don't easily fit with getting to your polling station.
There is a simple form to fill in which you can download from the Kirklees council website here. It takes just a few minutes to complete the form, and once you've sent it back, they will let you know that they've received it.
You must submit your application before the deadline, which is 5pm on May 23rd, in order to get your postal vote sent to you in time.
It's as simple as that.
