Nominate someone else to vote on your behalf

Anyone who is registered can apply for a proxy vote. 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.

When you apply for a proxy vote you must provide a reason. The person you wish to appoint as your proxy can only act as proxy if they are 18 or over and they are (or will be) registered for that election or referendum.

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

Proxy vote applications may be emailed to
