Proxy voting

Please be aware that the person you appoint as your proxy will be required to cast your vote at your polling station in Leeds.

If you would like to nominate someone you trust to go to the polling station and vote on your behalf, you can apply for a proxy vote. Everyone is entitled to apply for a proxy vote for one specific polling day. If you have special requirements, you may be able to apply for a proxy for all elections.

The person you choose to be your proxy can be anybody, as long as they are registered to vote. If either of you need to register, go to the national registration site.

The proxy voting application form is available online.

Completed forms need to be returned to the following address:

Electoral Services
Leeds Town Hall
The Headrow
