Apply for a proxy vote

If you can't vote in person on election day you can ask someone to do it on your behalf. This is called a proxy vote. 

You can ask anyone to act as your proxy as long as they're registered to vote and can vote in the same type of election. A proxy can only vote on behalf of two other people, unless they're close family members.

You must give the reason that you can't vote in person when you apply.
