Voting by proxy is a convenient way of voting if you are unable to get to the polling station. The term 'by proxy' just means that you appoint someone you trust to vote on your behalf.
Voting by proxy can be useful if, for any reason, you are unable to vote in person and do not wish to vote by post.
Appointing a proxy
If you appoint a proxy, you can still vote in person as long as your proxy has not already done so, or has not been granted a postal vote for you.
Emergency proxy votes
If it is an emergency please go to the Electoral Commission's website.
