Postal Votes are arriving

My postal vote arrived today, and has now been returned.

The instructions may look complicated, but this is the summary:

Put a cross on the ballot paper and put (just) this into the ballot paper envelope.

Complete the declaration with your date of birth and signature. (This is needed to try to prevent postal vote fraud - they are both checked when the ballot is returned so the vote won't count if the declaration isn't returned including these bits of information.)

The ballot paper and the declaration are then returned in the main envelope (the one addressed to the Returning Officer at the Guildhall!)

If you think it is getting too late to return your postal ballot by post, then the completed package (including the declaration) can be delivered to a polling station in your ward on polling day.

For more information or advice, see the City Council website.
