Emergency proxy

In certain circumstances, where you have an emergency that means you can't vote in person, you can apply for someone you know to vote on your behalf.

Emergency proxy applications can be made up to 5pm on the day of the election.

If the proxy vote deadline has passed you may be able to apply for an emergency proxy vote if any of the following apply:

  • you cannot vote in person because of a medical emergency or disability
  • you cannot vote in person because of your employment
  • the photo ID you were planning on using to vote has been lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed
  • you've not yet received a new or replacement photo ID you've ordered

The emergency situation must have occurred after 5pm, six working days before the election.

The person voting for you must be registered to vote and will need to bring their valid photo ID.
