Deadline looming to apply to vote by proxy
There is less than a week to get your application in to vote by proxy for the 2015 UK general election.
You can apply to vote by proxy for various reasons including if you are suddenly taken ill up until polling day.
Once you’ve applied, your proxy will be sent a proxy polling card, telling them where and when to vote and must go to your local polling place to vote. You must let your proxy know how you want them to vote on your behalf, for example, for which candidate or party.
If you are able to go to the polling station on election day, you can still vote in person as long as your proxy has not already done so.
In addition, you can also apply for an emergency proxy up until 5pm on polling day if your occupation, service or employment means that you cannot go to the polling station in person, and you only become aware of that fact after 5pm, six working days before polling day.
Applications for a proxy vote must be submitted to Carmarthenshire County Council by 5pm on Tuesday, April 28.
If there isn't time for you to return a proxy voting application form by post you can deliver it by hand or send a scan of the completed and signed form via email.
