Proxy vote

If you aren't able to vote in person you can ask someone you trust to do it for you. This is called a proxy vote and the person you choose is often called your proxy. 

Your proxy can go to the polling station for you or they can apply to cast your vote by post

You need to provide reasons for appointing a proxy, depending on your circumstances you may be able to appoint a permanent proxy based on your registration information.
