Voting by proxy
If you want someone to vote on your behalf you can choose to vote by proxy.
Anyone over the age of 18 can be appointed as your proxy, as long as they are eligible to vote in the election and are willing to vote on your behalf. Your proxy must be able to vote for you at your specified polling station. If this is not possible they may want to apply to vote for you by post.
If you are unable to cast your vote in person, you can apply for an emergency proxy vote up to 5pm on polling day. You should contact us in this case.
