Please note that postal vote applications received by:

  • 6 November will be issued around 28 November
  • Applications received between 7 November and the close of postal votes on 26 November will not be issued until 3 December

Proxy votes

You can ask for someone to vote on your behalf if you are unable to get to the polling station. This is called voting by proxy. If you want to vote by proxy you will need to provide a reason why you aren't able to get to the polling station yourself.

It is possible to have a permanent proxy vote for reasons of a disability or employment. However, your application must be certified through a third party, such as your employer or doctor.

Proxy votes can be done at a polling station or by post.

For your proxy to vote by post, they need to complete the proxy postal vote form and return it to the same address as above.
