Away on the day? Register for postal or proxy votes for the local election

Published Wednesday 10 April 2019 at 16:39

The deadline for applications for postal and proxy voting is approaching – so don’t miss your chance to vote if you can’t be there in person.

If you have already registered but won’t be able to make it to a polling station on voting day, you can apply for a postal vote by 5pm on Monday 15 April.

The deadline for an application for a proxy vote, when someone else can vote for you via the polling station or through a postal vote only with your permission and your signature, is 5pm on Wednesday 24 April.

If you think you will be away when your postal vote is delivered, a proxy vote may be the best option.
