Any elector can vote by proxy if:
- they plan to be away from Queens on both Advance Polling days and Regular Polling day, OR
- they are unable to attend at their polling station because of illness or physical disability, AND
- his or her name is on the final list of electors or they have a Certificate of Eligibility.
The last day to have proxy papers filled out and returned to the Municipal Office was Friday, October 12, 2012. Proxy voters can only vote on Ordinary Polling Day; they cannot vote at Advance Polls. THE PROXY PAPER DEADLINE HAS PASSED.
A person can only be a proxy voter for one non-relative, but can be a proxy voter for any number of relatives that include a child, grandchild, brother, sister, parent, grandparent, husband or wife of the proxy voter, as long as they live within Queens County.
