On Thursday 4 July there are elections to vote for the Members of the UK Parliament.

Who can vote in the election?

So long as you are registered, you can vote in the election if you are:

  • Over 18 and either:
  • A British Citizen residing in the United Kingdom or overseas or
  • A Qualifying Commonwealth Citizen (including Cyprus and Malta) or
  • A Citizen of the Republic of Ireland

Please note: European Union citizens are not entitled to vote in this election.


Following Constituency boundary changes, Bromley has responsibility for three constituencies:

  • Beckenham and Penge
  • Bromley and Biggin Hill
  • Orpington

Royal Borough of Greenwich has responsibility for one constituency:

  • Eltham and Chislehurst - which contains the Bromley wards of Mottingham and Chislehurst

Maps of the constituencies

In each constituency there will be one ballot paper - you will have one vote for the candidate of your choice.

Before the election a poll card will be sent to everyone who is eligible to vote.  Ordinary poll cards show when, where and how to vote.  The card is for information only and you do not need it to vote.

Voter ID

Following the introduction of the Elections Act 2022 electors must show one of the valid forms of ID to be able to vote a polling station at this election.

If electors do not have any of the accepted forms of ID they can apply for a Voter Authority Certificate (VAC).

Postal Votes

You can apply to vote by post.

To ensure that you receive your postal vote at the earliest opportunity, please apply as soon as you can.

Please note that Postal Vote packs cannot be printed until nominations close, which means that some of these may not dispatched until 7 to 10 days before the day of poll. Specific dates will be updated, when known, in the key dates below.

If this is not suitable, for example, because you are a UK voter living overseas or are going on holiday before this time you may wish to apply for a proxy vote instead.

Proxy Voting

You can apply to vote by proxy. This is a person who you choose to vote on your behalf at your polling station.

Please note the deadlines to apply for a Postal Vote, a Proxy Vote or to cancel or amend an existing arrangement are listed in the ‘Key Dates’ below
