The law allows a voter who cannot attend the Polling Station due to:
- Absence from St Helena on Election Day, or
- Illness or physical incapacity
to appoint a person (a “Proxy”) to vote on his or her behalf.
The Proxy must be a person whose name is on the Electoral Register for the same Polling District as the sick or absent elector. No person may act as Proxy for more than one sick or absent voter.
Appropriate forms are available from the Returning Officer (at 1 Main Street), the Customer Care Centre and the Library. Completed forms must be submitted to the Returning Officer by 10am on Monday 15 July 2013, or earlier.
