Proxy Voting Applications

Proxy Voting Applications can now be submitted to the Electoral Commission.

Proxy Voting is for voters who currently reside overseas or who know they will be overseas on polling day.

Proxy Voters who are leaving to go overseas need to attach their travel itinerary showing that they are absent from Nauru on polling day 9 July 2016.

Download the form and complete all three pages as far as possible.

If you can, get your proxy to sign page three before submitting the application.

If you can’t get your proxy to sign page three – because you are overseas and they are here in Nauru, then please let your proxy know that you have submitted the form so that they can come to the office and sign it.

Please try to include your Proxy’s phone number on page 3 too – so we can ring them if they have forgotten to come in.

You can download the form here – or in the case of voters who are expecting to be away, then please feel free to come in and collect or complete the form in our office.

Form 1 Application for Proxy Voting

Applications close at 9am on Friday 8 July, so please don’t delay in getting your proxy application in.

If you need to mobile vote instead – please use the link below.
