Voting by Proxy


If you are unable to make it to your Poll Station on Polling day you can nominate someone to act as a proxy on your behalf. The nominated proxy will have to go to your Polling Station. 

To nominate someone as your proxy you must first complete the Proxy vote application form and return it to the Electoral Services.

Proxy vote application form

You must be registered to vote in order to apply for a proxy vote.

For select emergency situations in we may be able to offer an emergency proxy vote up to the poll date. This must be something that you weren't aware of before the normal proxy vote deadline.
