You can ask anyone to act as your proxy, as long as they are registered to vote and it’s for a type of election they’re allowed to vote in.
You can be a proxy for 2 people at the same election, or more if the extra people are close relatives.
There are different forms, depending on why you can’t get to the polling station. Make sure you complete the right one.
Send the completed form to your local Electoral Registration Office.
Don’t include personal or financial information like your National Insurance number or credit card details.
