Voting by Proxy means appointing someone else to vote on your behalf. All you need to do is fill in a proxy vote application form. This is available for various reasons, for example if you are away on holiday, working away from home or if you are a student.
Completed forms can be returned by post to: Elections Unit, Bassetlaw District Council, Queen's Buildings, Potter Street, Worksop, S80 2AH
Completed forms can also be scanned and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for receipt of applications to vote by proxy in the UK Parliamentary general election on 12th December 2019 is 5pm on 4th December 2019.
If you find that you are able to vote in person at your polling station on polling day, you can still do this but only if you go to the polling station before your proxy does.
Vote by Postal Proxy
If your proxy can't get to the polling station, they can apply to vote for you by post. For the UK Parliamentary general election on 12th December 2019 applications must be received by 5pm on 26th November 2019. They must contact the Elections Unit at Bassetlaw District Council for more details and to request a further application form.
