Voting by post or proxy

Voting by post or proxy

Postal voting gives you the option of voting by post rather than visiting a polling station.

A proxy is where you can appoint someone to vote on your behalf either at your polling station or by post. If you want to appoint a proxy you'll need to provide a reason why, for example, you're on holiday or in hospital.

Overseas Electors

If you are a British citizen living abroad you can apply to be an overseas voter. You need to register each year before 15 October.

You must have been registered to vote in the UK is the last 15 years and be eligible to vote in UK Parliamentary general elections. If you were too young to register when you left the UK you can still register as an overseas voter. You can do this if your parent or guardian was registered to vote in the UK as long as you left the UK no more than 15 years ago.
