Proxy vote for people who fall ill
Published: Wednesday 25th April 12
People who find that they cannot vote in next week’s Elections for the Mayor of London and the London Assembly because they suddenly fall ill or become medically incapacitated can still apply for a proxy vote.
Anyone who wishes to apply for a proxy vote under these circumstances has until 5pm on polling day itself - Thursday, May 3 - to request one.
This application will need to be accompanied by a signed medical certificate outlining the reasons why a proxy is required.
People who request this option must ensure that their proxy is able to attend their specific polling station on the day of the vote. Polling stations will be open on May 3 from 7am to 10pm.
Proxy vote application forms are available from the Electoral Services reception in the town hall. The entrance is in Fairfield Street and the reception is open 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday. The reception will also be open this Saturday from 9am to 4pm for telephone and personal callers.
People entitled to vote in these elections are those born in this country, plus Commonwealth citizens and citizens of British overseas territories and the European Union.
