Emergency Proxy Voting

If you or someone you know will be in hospital unexpectedly on 7 May and will be unable to vote in person, they will be able to arrange a proxy vote by completing a straightforward form. A registered voter can only act as proxy for two other people. Proxy voting forms must be submitted to the Lothian Valuation Joint Board (address below) up to 5pm on May 7. They might need to be signed by a member of the hospital staff.
