If you are going to be away before the postal votes are sent out by the local council and on polling day, you can appoint someone as your proxy. This means that they vote on your behalf, in person at a polling station.
If you have a medical emergency after the deadline to apply for a proxy, you can apply to vote by emergency proxy if the emergency means that you cannot go to the polling station in person.
You can also apply to vote by emergency proxy if your occupation, service or employment means that you cannot go to the polling station in person, and you only become aware of that fact after the deadline.
You can apply for an emergency proxy vote up to 5pm on polling day.
