I vote by proxy and my nominated proxy has registered as a postal proxy (to vote on my behalf by post). Will you be writing to both of us to ask for fresh signatures?
Yes, we will write to you to confirm that you still wish to vote by proxy. Should you fail to provide a new signature (that can be scanned into the system) within the timescales, we will write to your postal proxy to inform them that their proxy appointment has been cancelled. We will also write to your postal proxy and ask them to provide us with a fresh signature. If they do not provide a fresh signature (that can be scanned into the system) by the deadline, they will lose their entitlement to vote by postal proxy and will need to cast their vote in person at your polling station. If this is the case, we will write to you as the elector to explain that while the proxy appointment remains in place, your proxy must now attend your polling station to vote on your behalf.
