On polling day I cannot get to the polling station due to unforeseen health reasons. Can I still vote?

If after the proxy deadline you discover that you will miss the election for work purposes, or have a medical emergency, there is still a chance that you are eligible for an emergency proxy vote. Please use the emergency proxy application form that is relevant to your situation, to find out if you can vote by proxy. Please return applications to us as soon as possible.

An emergency proxy vote must be attested by a qualified person either a Doctor, Registered Nurse or Christian Science practitioner. If you live in a residential care home or sheltered accommodation the warden or head of home can support the application. For an emergency proxy application form contact Electoral Services.
