Vote by proxy
To be able to vote by proxy, you and your proxy must be on the electoral register.
If you're unable to vote in person you can get someone to vote for you, and tell them who to vote for. This is called a proxy vote.
You can apply for a single election, a specific election or permanently. You'll need to give a reason why you can't vote in person, such as disability or employment and your application may need to be certified by your doctor or employer. To qualify for an election we have to receive your application form by 5pm, 11 working days before polling day.
You can download an application form here.
Return your completed application form to The Electoral Registration Office, Plymouth City Council, Ballard House, West Hoe Road, Plymouth, PL1 3BJ.
Although applications for proxy voting may be made at any time of the year, to qualify for an election there's two deadlines:
You can change or cancel your proxy vote before 5pm, 11 working days before an election.
- Changes of address for delivery of ballot paper
- Cancellation of a postal vote
- Change from proxy to postal
Proxy voting application forms must be received by 5pm, six working days before polling day.
