Personation is a term used in law for the specific kind of voter fraud where an individual votes in an election, whilst pretending to be a different elector. Many jurisdictions allow electors to nominate an individual to vote on their behalf, in certain circumstances; this is known as proxy voting. Whilst voting with an invalid proxy form could be considered personation, it is usual for an intent to deceive to be required for such an act to be considered criminal.
