Proxy voting means that if you aren't able to cast your vote in person, you can have someone you trust cast your vote for you. They must go to your polling station to cast your vote.

To apply for a proxy vote, you have to complete a form and give a reason why you can't get to your polling station in person.

This may be because you're going to be on holiday, or have a physical condition which means you can't get to your polling station on polling day.

Whether or not your reason is accepted will vary depending on:

  • the type of proxy vote you apply for
  • when you apply
  • where in the UK you're registered to vote

Please visit the Electoral Commission website for more information on voting by proxy.
