< back to all FAQs on voting by proxy
Your proxy must go to your local polling place to vote.
Your proxy will be sent a proxy poll card, telling them where and when to vote.
You must let your proxy know how you want them to vote on your behalf, for example, for which candidate or party.
If your proxy cannot get to the polling place, they can apply to vote for you by post. They can apply to do this up to 5pm, 11 working days before election day. Your electoral registration office can give you more details about this.

If you are able to go to the polling station on election day, you can still vote in person as long as your proxy has not already done so or has not applied to vote by post for you.
