Apply to vote by proxy
Voting by proxy is a convenient way of voting if you are unable
to get to the polling station. 'By proxy' just means that you
appoint someone you trust to vote on your behalf. To vote by proxy,
you’ll need to be registered to vote. Then just fill in an
application form, sign it, and send it back to your local electoral
registration office. You can get their address and other details by
entering your postcode on this website.
