Voting by Proxy
To vote by proxy you must complete a proxy vote application form.
The deadline to apply for a proxy vote is six working days before polling day.
If you already have a postal vote, you must cancel this before you can appoint a proxy to vote for you.
If you only need a proxy vote for one election, you do not need support for your application. You must state why you need a proxy vote for that specific election. For example, because you will be on holiday on polling day.
You can apply for a long-term proxy vote if you are:
- A registered service voter
- A registered overseas elector
- A registered elector who has a physical disability
- A registered elector who is away from home due to employment or education commitments
You must meet certain conditions to get a long-term proxy vote. Your application must also have support from a relevant person. For example, a healthcare professional if you are applying because of a disability.
You can access an application form using the link below.
