2020 General Election COVID-19 and the 2020 General Election

This year’s election will be different because of COVID-19. A range of measures will be in place to help keep people safe while they vote in the 2020 General Election and referendums.

There’ll be some changes to the way voting places are set up and an optional postal voting service will be available for voters at high risk from COVID-19.

Voting will start earlier and there will be more voting places to spread voting over a longer period and reduce congestion in voting places.
