The Hague - Vote by proxy in the Provincial Council and Water Board elections

Vote by proxy in the Provincial Council and Water Board elections

Are you not able to vote in person on election day? Then you can authorise someone else to vote on your behalf (proxy vote).

The authorised person can be a proxy for a maximum of 2 other people for the same election. This person has to cast the proxy votes at the same time as his or her own vote(s).

You can authorise somebody in 2 ways: private authorisation on the back of your voting pass or written authorisation.

Private authorisation

  • Authorise someone else to vote on your behalf using the private authorisation on the back of your voting pass (onderhandse volmacht). This person must also live in The Hague.
  • Fill out the back of your voting pass.
  • The person who will vote on your behalf (the proxy) must fill in his information.
  • Both you and your proxy have to sign the back of the voting pass.
  • When casting the vote, the proxy has to show your proof of identity (or a copy of it). The proxy can also show your proof of identity on a smartphone or tablet.
