Voting and elections

Proxy voting

Apply by 5pm 25 April to appoint a proxy for the local council elections on 3 May. 

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.

To appoint a proxy a completed application form must be received by the Electoral Registration Officer by 5pm on Wednesday 25 April.

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.

Emergency proxy

In certain circumstances you may be able to appoint an emergency proxy to vote for you. Application forms for these will appear after 5pm 25 April when the normal proxy deadline has passed.
