Proxy voting

 

voteWith proxy applications you nominate someone to vote on your behalf.

 

That person will then receive a proxy poll card which they can take to the polling station on election day which will be exchanged for a ballot paper.

 

Who?

 

Anyone can be your proxy as long as they are eligible to vote in that type of election and they are willing to vote on your behalf.

 

When?

 

The deadline for applying to vote by proxy is normally 6 working days before an election. However, if you have a medical emergency 6 days before election day or after, you can apply to vote by emergency proxy if the emergency means that you cannot go to the polling station in person.

 

How?

 

Please go to the electoral commission website.
