By proxy (on your behalf)
You can allow someone to vote on your behalf (by proxy). To do this, you and your proxy must be on the Register of Electors
You can apply for a proxy:
- for a specific election; or
- for a certain length of time; or
When applying, you need to say why you want to vote by proxy. If the application is for a permanent proxy, you must get someone to support it.
Applications to vote by proxy must be received by our Electoral Registration Officer by 5pm on the 6th working day before poll.
You must tell your proxy which candidate you want to vote for.
If you've changed your mind and want to vote in person, you can as long as your proxy hasn't already voted on your behalf.
