Vote by proxy
If you think you might not be able to get to the polling station on election day, you can ask someone else to vote on your behalf as a proxy.
There is a short application form that you need to complete. This will ask for your name and address, and the name and address of the person you want to vote for you.
Your proxy needs to be someone who is also on the electoral register, and can be a member of your family or a friend.
It’s important to remember that your proxy will need to go to the polling station that you would normally vote in.
