Proxy votes

A proxy vote is when you appoint another person to vote on your behalf.

A person:

  • can only be a proxy for up to 2 other people
  • they must be eligible to vote in the same elections that they have been appointed to proxy for.

After applying

We will write to you to confirm that we have received your application. If you have not received confirmation within 10 working days, contact Electoral Services.

The election office will tell your proxy when and where they should vote on your behalf. This will be your usual polling station, unless your proxy has requested a postal vote.
