Apply for the appointment of a Proxy to vote
Only if you are unable to vote in person at your polling station or as an advance voter, you may apply to appoint a proxy to vote on your behalf on 22 September 2016.
An application form for the appointment of a proxy is available from:
- The returning officer for your constituency
- Cabinet Office website at www.gov.im/elections
- Cabinet Office, Third Floor, Government Offices, Bucks Road, Douglas.
Please note an application for the appointment of a proxy must be received by the Electoral Registration Officer on or before Friday 16 September 2016.
A person who is appointed as a proxy voter must:
- be aged 16 or over; and
- not be appointed proxy to vote on behalf of more than 2 individuals; except where the proxy is the spouse, civil partner, parent, grandparent, brother, sister, child or grandchild of those individuals. A proxy may be appointed for any number of these family members.
A proxy voter may be required to produce satisfactory photographic evidence of identity before being permitted to vote at a polling station.
Please note that when a proxy has been appointed to vote on your behalf you may still vote in person, provided you apply at the polling station for a ballot paper for the purpose of voting in person BEFORE a ballot paper has been issued to your proxy.
