Proxy voting allows you to appoint someone to vote on your behalf. There are special forms and legal requirements for this. Please contact the Electoral Services Team on 023 8083 2245 if you require help with this process.
To apply for a proxy vote complete the proxy vote application form on the Electoral Commission website. Please return completed forms to:
ELECTORAL REGISTRATION OFFICER
SOUTHAMPTON CITY COUNCIL
Regulations require applicants to supply a date of birth and current signature to help prevent fraudulent claims. If you are unable to supply a current signature please contact us.
Proxy voting can either be at your polling station or by post (postal proxy).
If you are a registered elector in the city of Southampton, you may apply to vote by proxy at any time during the year. However on the occasion of an election, the application must be delivered to Electoral Services no later than the deadline published on the relevant election timetable. For the City Council Elections on 2nd May 2019, this deadline is 5pm on Wednesday 24th April.
If you have appointed a proxy but then find you are able to attend at the polling station in person, you can do so providing your proxy has not already voted on your behalf.
