Postal and proxy voting

If you're away or cannot go to your polling station on election day, you can do one of the following:

Apply to vote by post

In the lead-up to an election we must receive your completed application by 5pm on the 11th working day before the election.

If you are given a postal vote, you will not be able to vote in person at this election. To apply to vote by post, email absentvote@dacorum.gov.uk to request an application form or download and complete a  postal vote application form (PDF 118KB)

Apply to vote by proxy (someone else voting on your behalf)

In the lead-up to an election we must receive your completed application by 5pm on the sixth working day before the election. If you appoint a proxy, you can vote if you wish, but only if your proxy has not already voted on your behalf and has not got a postal vote for you. To apply to vote by proxy, email absentvote@dacorum.gov.uk to request an application form or download and complete a  proxy vote application form (PDF 115KB)

If you have a permanent physical incapacity, are registered blind or receive the higher rate of mobility component of the disability living allowance for a physical disability, you are eligible for a permanent proxy vote. To apply for a permanent proxy, please contact us.
