Proxy voting

Appointing a proxy means someone else will cast your vote for you. They would need to vote at your designated polling station. The appointed proxy must be registered to vote and also eligible to vote at the election.

You can download an application form at the bottom of the page under 'Useful documents' and once completed it can be scanned and emailed to: electoral.services@islington.gov.uk. You have until Tuesday 26 April 2022, 5pm to apply for a proxy vote.

Emergency proxy

In certain circumstances you may be able to appoint an emergency proxy to vote for you. The application forms for these are below in the useful documents section below. You can call Election Services 020 7527 3110 if you have any questions about applying for an emergency proxy.

Or by post or hand:

What is an emergency proxy vote?

This must be something that you weren't aware of before the normal proxy vote deadline. For example:

  • You have a medical emergency
  • You are away for work
  • You cannot vote in person due to Covid-19. The form can also be used to change your nominated proxy if they cannot vote in person on your behalf due to Covid-19.

These applications can be made up to 5pm on polling day.
