Postal voting for proxy voters
If you have been appointed as a proxy voter and are unable to attend your polling station in person, you can apply to have ballot papers sent to you by post.
You must apply for the postal vote, not the person who has appointed you to vote for them.
To request an application for a proxy to vote by post, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone the helpline 0121 303 2731. You are not able to apply for a postal vote as a proxy online.
It is important to remember that although the deadline to appoint a proxy is 5pm 6 working days before polling day, when the proxy wishes to apply for a postal vote the deadline becomes 5pm 11 working days prior to polling day.
Once you have been granted a postal vote, neither you, nor the person who has appointed you as a proxy, will be able to vote in person at the polling station.
