Proxy voting - appointing someone to vote on your behalf

If you can't vote yourself, you can appoint someone to vote on your behalf, as a proxy.

You can apply for a proxy vote depending on your circumstances. There is a requirement that you and the person you wish to appoint as proxy, must be registered to vote.

A person cannot be a proxy for more than two people at any one election or referendum, unless they are a close relative


Applying for a single election?

If you are applying for a single election or referendum, you simply need to complete this form. You do not need to get anyone to support your application.
