Residents who have chosen to vote by post should receive their ballot papers in the next week or so as the council is aiming to send out postal votes by Monday, April 26 at the latest.
Residents who have chosen to vote by proxy - this means they have appointed someone to vote on their behalf have until 5pm on Tuesday, April 27, to return their completed application form to the electoral registration team based at Hereford Town Hall.
The application form can be found on the councils website and is available from Info shops and libraries. Applicants may need to have their application vouched for, depending on the reasons.
If someone is unable to get to the polling station due to a medical emergency that has arisen after the normal deadline, they can apply to vote by proxy up to 5pm on the day of the election.
