Voting by proxy

This is the improved Camden website. Find out what's new.

Voting by proxy

If you prefer or are unable to go to your polling station to vote you can apply for a proxy vote.

Appointing a proxy means that someone else will cast your vote for you.

Your appointed proxy will need to cast your vote at your designated polling station. Your proxy must be registered to vote and eligible to vote at the election.

Once appointed a proxy can apply for a postal proxy where your ballot papers are sent to them, however this must be set up by the postal vote deadline which is a week before the proxy deadline.

Apply to vote by proxy

You can apply to vote by proxy online on the GOV.UK website. 

You will need to provide your National Insurance number or other identity document, your signature, and the address and contact details of your proxy.

Alternatively, you can complete a proxy vote application form (PDF). Scan and email your completed form to or post it to:

Electoral Services
Crowndale Centre
218 Eversholt Street
NW1 1BD  

If you are unable to download a form and require a paper version please call 020 7974 4444 to request a paper proxy application.

You can also visit our libraries where printing services are available.

Emergency proxy

If you have a medical or employment emergency which means you can’t go to your polling station on election day, you may be eligible for an emergency proxy. 

Before you apply, read the instructions on the forms carefully to see if you qualify.
