Absent Voting - Voting by post or proxy

You can apply to vote by post or proxy, if you can’t attend your allocated polling place to vote on the day of an election or referendum.

Voting by post

Applying for a postal vote is simple, you can request a postal vote just because you want to, no reason needs to be given. Your ballot paper(s) will be sent to you by post, prior to an election or referendum.

Voting by proxy

You can appoint someone you trust to cast your vote for you, either in person at your allocated polling place, or by post if they apply for a postal vote to vote on your behalf.

A proxy appointment can be made on the grounds of incapacity, work reasons or educational absence.
