Election rules were relaxed in 2001, and since then thousands of voters in Ipswich have chosen to vote by post. Anyone can apply for a postal vote, they aren’t just for people who are ill or on holiday. You don’t need to give a reason, if voting by post is more convenient than getting to the polling station sign-up for a postal vote now.
