November 26 is deadline for registering to vote in General Election

If you would like to register to vote in the General Election on Thursday, December 12, then you must apply to do so by Tuesday, November 26.

Wealden Council is completing its 2019 electoral roll and anyone missing from it will not be able to vote.

District returning officer Trevor Scott said: “We want to remind voters that if they aren’t on the register and want to vote in the forthcoming General Election, they need to act now.

Polling cards

Polling cards were due to start going out yesterday (Tuesday, November 12) and anyone who hadn’t received theirs by Friday (November 15), has the opportunity to apply before next Monday, November 26.

Students or other family members returning home for the Christmas break may be registered to vote in their university constituency, or Wealden, or both.

If they have a polling card, they will be eligible to vote on December 12 in Wealden. But they can only vote in one constituency. If you are unsure of the circumstances, please contact the elections team.

Postal vote

Tuesday, November 26, is also the last date you can apply for a postal vote for the General Election, or change your existing postal or proxy vote arrangements. The deadline is 5pm.

• Contact the council about registering to vote via email at, or by calling 01892 602417.

• Full details of the 2019 General Election timetable can be found on the Forthcoming Elections page of the Wealden website.

• The deadline for nomination papers of people wishing to stand in the election is 4pm tomorrow, Thursday, November 14.
