How to vote if you can't get to a polling station on 3 May

If you are not able to vote at the polling station, you can apply to vote by post or proxy (someone else to vote on your behalf).  If you already have a postal or proxy vote in place, you do not need to reapply. The deadline to apply for a postal vote has now passed, but there is still time to apply to vote by proxy.

For you to appoint a proxy to vote on your behalf, you need to apply by 5pm on Wednesday, 25 April 2018.

You can download a proxy vote form from our voting by proxy page.

You can also get a proxy vote application form by contacting Electoral Services on 01274 431360.
