About your postal vote
Postal votes can be sent anywhere, either inside or outside the United Kingdom (if, for example, you are going on holiday). Remember, though, that if the address is outside the UK it will take time to reach you and for you to return it in order for your vote to be counted.
If you move house you must tell the Electoral Registration Officer immediately, or you may lose your postal vote.
