Changes to the way postal votes can submitted

There are new government rules around how you submit your postal vote, as part of a crackdown on electoral fraud.

The quickest and easiest way is to post your completed vote to us via Royal Mail, and let us sort the rest.

Any postal votes that are hand-delivered to us must be signed for at Electoral Services, Dudley Council House, Dudley.

Any postal votes hand-delivered in any other way risks not being counted.
