and you were not aware of the circumstances on 20th April, you can apply for am Emergency Proxy Vote.
You should ask somebody you trust to vote in accordance with your wishes to vote on your behalf.
Download the appropriate Emergency Proxy Voting Application (use links above) complete it and arrange for it to be delivered to the Civic Centre. You should apply as soon as possible but this can be any time up to 5pm on polling day.
Ask your Proxy to go to the polling station named on your polling card (see our post regarding polling stations in South Ashford), and tell the staff that they are voting on your behalf by Emergency Proxy. Tell them who you want to vote for in each election in which you are voting: Police and Crime Commissioner, Kent County Council and, if you live in the ward, Ashford Borough Council Beaver Ward (see our list of candidates).
Remember: Your Vote is Yours Alone
You must not allow somebody else to use your polling card or vote on your behalf unless they have been nominated on a Proxy Voting Application.
Only nominate somebody you trust to vote in accordance with your wishes.
