Plan ahead for voting

You can plan ahead for elections if you know that you will be unable to get to your polling station on election day, by using a postal or proxy vote. This must be arranged in advance or can be set up as a permanent option.

For a postal proxy vote to allow your appointed individual to vote on your behalf in the run up to an election, please contact the Electoral Services Office on (01273) 291999 or email

For more information on postal and proxy voting, please see our frequently asked questions on voting and elections.
