3. Have someone vote on your behalf - voting by proxy
You can appoint someone to vote on your behalf if you are unable to get to the polling station. This is called voting by proxy.
To do this, you'll need to complete and sign an application form and return it to the electoral registration office.
To find out more information and download an application form, visit the Your Vote Matters website using the link below.
Alternatively you can request an application pack by contacting the elections office.
You'll need to register to vote on GOV.UK before you can apply to vote by proxy.
Please note: You must go to the polling station of the person who appointed you as their proxy. If you can’t go to their polling station, you can apply to vote for them by post. You must apply before 5pm, 11 working days before the poll.
