Voting by Proxy
If you are voting by proxy, the person you choose to vote on your behalf will need to go to your polling station to vote and will need to show their own photo ID to be able to cast your vote. They will not need to show your ID when voting on your behalf.
To apply to vote by proxy at this election, complete a proxy voting application form and return this to Wyre Council by 5pm on Wednesday, 14th June 2023.
If you are suddenly unable to vote in person, because you have a medical emergency which prevents you from attending on polling day, or 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 the deadline, then you may be entitled to appoint an emergency proxy.
You can apply for an emergency proxy up until 5pm on polling day. You should contact Wyre Council’s Electoral Services team to ask about this.
