    • You should be able to register for a postal vote before you go away.
      Basingstoke and Deane will issue further instructions on how and where to vote in the very near future and that will contain full details of who can vote and where/how etc.
      So short answer is yes, provided you are eligible to vote in that election and have registered for postal voting.
