Download the application form for voting by proxy

The deadline for applying to vote by proxy in the general election is 5pm on Wednesday 4 December.

Proxy voting means you can appoint someone to vote on your behalf.  The person you choose will then need to go to your polling station to cast your vote.

Either you or your proxy can vote, but not both.

If you wish to vote by proxy at the next election, please note that your application (form available to download below) must be received by 5pm on the 6th working day before the election. 

We will send your proxy a poll card which will provide the details for your polling station.

If you find out that you cannot get to your polling station after this deadline because of medical or employment reasons, you may be able to appoint a proxy on emergency grounds. Please contact us on 023 9283 4074 for further details. 

Further information and advice on how to vote may be found on the Electoral Commission's website.

If you have any questions please contact the Election Services Office by phone on 023 9283 4074, or by email at elections@portsmouthcc.gov.uk.
