About proxy votes

As an alternative to postal voting, you can appoint someone to vote on your behalf. This is called proxy voting. 

If you already have a postal vote and wish to change to a proxy vote you must tell us by 5pm, 11 working days before the poll.

The deadline for new proxy applications must be received by our elections services team by 5pm, six working days before the election.
