Following a recent change in the law, anybody on the electoral roll is entitled to register for a postal vote. You no longer have to prove that you are incapable of making it to your polling station.
So, if you will be away on polling day, at work or on holiday, are physically unable or just don't have the time to get to a polling station to vote in person, you can still exercise your democratic right to vote. You may have moved house since the electoral register was drawn up and have not yet joined the register at your new address.
You can choose either to vote by post or to appoint someone else – a proxy – to vote on your behalf.
