Residents have until Wednesday 14 May, 5pm to let Merton Council’s electoral services team know if they want to vote by proxy in this year’s local and European elections.
Voting by proxy means someone can vote on your behalf if you cannot vote in person at your nearest polling station. This is particularly useful for people who are away from home on the day of the elections or those who have missed the deadline to apply to vote by post.
To vote by proxy, residents will need to fill out a form on the council’s website and return it to electoral services. The person nominated must be legally able to vote and cannot vote on behalf of more than two people unless they are closely related.
