Proxy voting

If you are unable to cast your vote in person or by post, you can ask someone you trust to cast your vote for you. This is called a proxy vote and the person casting your vote is referred to as your proxy. The person voting on your behalf can either go to your polling station to cast your vote, or can apply to vote for you by post. The person you nominate as proxy must be registered and eligible to vote in local elections. 

To apply for a proxy vote please call 01395 571529 or email

The deadline for registering to vote by proxy in the elections on 6th May is 5pm on Tuesday, 27 April 2021. However, if your proxy will need to cast your vote by post, rather than at the polling station, please submit your application by Tuesday, 13 April 2021
