Postal and proxy votes

If you know you will not be able to get to the polling station on the election day, you can apply for a postal vote or a proxy vote.

Voting by proxy just means that you appoint someone you trust to vote on your behalf. It can be useful if you fall ill and are unable to get to the polling station on election day, or if you are abroad during an election.

If you are not currently on the electoral register, then you need to complete a registration form by Friday 12 April 2019. You can apply online on the Your vote matters website.

To vote by proxy or postal, you’ll need to complete and sign an application form and then print and return it to us before the following deadlines.

  • postal vote applications: 5pm on Monday 15 April 2019
  • proxy vote applications: 5pm on Wednesday 24 April 2019
  • emergency proxy votes: 5pm on Thursday 2 May 2019

You can apply for a proxy vote on the Your vote matters website.

You need to sign your application form personally because the electoral registration office needs a copy of your signature for voting security reasons.

Please return registration, postal and proxy application forms to:
    Electoral Registration Officer
    Luton Council
    Town Hall
    George Street
    LU1 2BQ
    T: 01582 510380
