Plans to ease Covid impact on general election

Hundreds unable to vote at recent local authority polls

Plans are in place to ease the impact of Covid-19 on September's General Election.

People have until 5pm on the eve of polling day to apply for a proxy vote - meaning someone else can vote on your behalf.

Hundreds were unable to cast their ballots at the recent local authority elections.

Head of Crown and Elections Frank Carolan says everyone should have the opportunity to vote:

The Isle of Man General Election is being held on 23 September.

Postal voting is also available for all voters this year, with applications now open.
