Electors are reminded that the deadline to apply for a proxy vote is less than a week away.
If you are a registered elector and unable to vote in person on election day, you can appoint a proxy - someone to vote at your allocated polling station on your behalf as long as they are also a registered elector.
If you wish to vote by proxy in the Scottish Parliament Election on 6 May 2021, your application form must arrive at the local Electoral Registration Office by Tuesday 27 April at 17:00 (5pm).
Once completed, forms should be posted to the Electoral Registration Office, 8 Broad Street, Kirkwall KW15 1NX, or scanned copies can be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Alternatively, phone our local Electoral Registration Office on 01856 876222 or email the team to request an application form at email@example.com
