The Liberal Democrats want to make sure everyone has the chance to cast their vote.

Many residents chose to vote by post. Simply complete and return this simple application form. The council will send you your ballot paper in the post about ten days before polling day. Return your vote to the council before the election in the envelope provided.

Every year many people who mean to vote don't make it to the polling station. Family commitments, holiday dates, work pressures or illness can mean things like voting get forgotten or become impossible.

If you would like to have your ballot paper sent to you, download the application form and send it directly to Epping Forest District Council at Electoral Services, Civic Offices, High Street, Epping, CM16 4BZ.
