How to vote - Vote by proxy

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. 

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 the person that you have appointed as your proxy is unable to get to the polling station for example if they live in a different area, you can apply for a postal proxy vote and they will have the ballot paper sent to them instead,  much the same as a regular postal vote. You will need to fill in a postal proxy vote form to arrange this.
