Please return completed forms to:

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

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.

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.
