Postal and proxy voting
If you cannot make it to the polling station you can also vote by post or by appointing a proxy.
To do so you will have to provide your date of birth and a copy of their signature.
You have to be registered to vote before applying for a postal or proxy vote. If you are not registered then do so now.
Anyone who is on the electoral register can apply for a postal vote.
You can have your ballot paper delivered to your registered address or, provided you can supply us with a reason, an alternative address.
You can also appoint someone to vote on your behalf. This is known as a proxy vote.
If you choose to vote by proxy for a particular election you are required to give a reason e.g. illness, disability, employment, attendance on a course etc.
If you choose to vote by proxy for all elections you will need to give a reason and get someone to support your application.
The people who are qualified to support your application appear under part 6a of the application form.
