Absent Vote - Postal & Proxy Voting

What is a postal vote?

Voting by post is an easy and convenient way of voting if you are unable to get to the polling station. Your ballot paper will be posted to you approximately two weeks before the election. You then need to complete the ballot paper and the enclosed security statement and then either post the pack back, deliver it in person to the Council Office, or deliver it on polling day to one of the polling stations in the electoral area. Whatever method of return is used, the ballot paper will only be counted if it is received by 10:00pm on the day of the election.

How can I arrange to vote by post?

You will need to complete a postal vote application form. The application form (linked below) can be returned by post to Electoral Registration Officer, Chiltern and South Bucks District Councils, King George V House, King George V Road, Amersham, HP6 5AW or by scanning the application and attaching it to an email to elections@chilternandsouthbucks.gov.uk.

The form can also be received at the South Bucks District Council Offices (Denham).

What is a proxy vote?

Voting by proxy is a convenient way of voting if you are unable to get to the polling station. To vote by proxy means that you appoint someone you trust to vote on your behalf. Their name will be held on a separate list at the polling station. You can still vote yourself on polling day if necessary, as long as you arrive at the polling station before your proxy. Voting by proxy can be useful if you fall ill or have to work abroad, and are unable to get to the polling station on election day.

Eligibility Requirements

Any registered elector can apply to vote by proxy, however there are certain requirements that you have to meet if you want to appoint a proxy on a permanent basis.

Arranging to vote by Proxy for a Particular Election
If you are unable to go to the polling station for a particular election, for example, if you are away on holiday; you can apply for a "particular election" proxy vote. You will need to complete a proxy vote application form.

The form can be returned by post to the Electoral Registration Officer, Chiltern and South Bucks District Councils, King George V House, King George V Road, Amersham, HP6 5AW or by scanning the application and attaching it to an email to elections@chilternandsouthbucks.gov.uk.

The form can also be received at the South Bucks District Council Offices (Denham), and Chiltern District Council Offices (Amersham).
