Voting by Proxy

If you cannot vote in person you can ask someone to vote for you.  This is called a proxy vote.

Who can vote by proxy?

Proxy votes are available to anyone who is registered to vote.  You can only apply for a proxy vote under certain circumstances, including:

  • being away on polling day
  • having a medical issue or disability
  • not being able to vote in person because of work, education or military service
  • registered as an overseas elector

Your proxy should be someone you trust to vote for you.  You will need to tell them how you wish your vote to be cast.
