Apply for a postal proxy vote
To apply for a postal proxy vote, you must download, print and fill in a postal proxy vote application form.
You need to make sure that you and the person who is voting on your behalf has signed the form.
Once the form is complete, you need to return it to us.
You can scan the form and send it to us online, or you can post the form to us.
We must receive your postal proxy vote application at least six working days before the election, so that we can issue your postal proxy vote.
If we do not receive your application in time you will still be able to vote at the polling station on the election day.
Casting a postal proxy vote
Once your proxy vote has been approved, you and your proxy will receive a confirmation letter.
If you are a proxy and voting on behalf of someone else, you will also receive:
- instructions about how to vote
- the postal vote for the person you are proxy for
Proxy voters and who they are voting on behalf of can’t vote at a polling station if they have a postal proxy vote. However, they can return the postal proxy vote to the polling station if they do not post it.
