Running electoral registration - Wales

Name changes on proxy vote record

An elector can apply to change their name on the register by submitting a completed change of name form with supporting evidence.1 The change of name will need to be reflected in the proxy voting record.

When an elector with a proxy vote changes their name, you should contact them to tell them that although their existing proxy vote arrangement will remain in place, they will need to make a new application if they are now using a new signature.
