Greenwich says, "You can apply to vote by post for any reason. If you are concerned about voting in person or might find it more convenient then apply now as there are legal deadlines for applications and earlier applications are sent our first. Due to the number we send out applications made near the deadline can arrive near to polling day. Completed postal votes must reach us by the close of normal polling to be counted.

Greenwich says, "Proxy voting means appointing somebody else to vote for you on your behalf if you can not get to your polling station. You must both be registered to vote but your proxy does not have to live in Royal Greenwich.
Your proxy will be sent a proxy poll card, telling them where and when to vote. You must let your proxy know which candidate or party you want them to vote for on your behalf.
In certain circumstances, where you have an emergency that means you can not vote in person, you can apply for an emergency proxy.
This must be something that you were not aware of before the normal proxy vote deadline.
If you think you need to vote by emergency proxy, please call 020 8921 5882.
