4. Proxy votes

If you are unable to vote due to physical incapacity, are away from home due to work or study, or if you will be away on holiday on polling day, and want someone to vote on your behalf at a polling station, you can apply for a proxy vote.

Forms can be requested by calling the elections office on 01392 265141 or emailing electoral.services@exeter.gov.uk.

You can apply for a proxy vote up to 6 working days before an election provided you are already registered to vote.
