Vote by proxy

Proxy voting means appointing somebody else to vote for you on your behalf if you can't get to your polling station. You must both be registered to vote but your proxy doesn't have to live in Royal Greenwich.

Your proxy will be sent a proxy poll card, telling them where and when to vote. You must let your proxy know which candidate or party you want them to vote for on your behalf.

Apply to vote by proxy (Your Vote Matters website)

Completed application forms can be emailed to or sent to Electoral Services, Town Hall, Wellington Street, Woolwich, London, SE18 6PW
