You can only apply for a long-term proxy vote if you have a
specific reason such as a disability or being overseas.
To vote by proxy for just one election, you must have a reason,
for example you will be on holiday or away due to work.
If you are suddenly incapacitated or taken ill, you can apply to
vote by proxy for medical reasons up until 5pm on polling day.
