Ballot papers due for postal voters

27 April 2012

BALLOT papers for postal voters in Port Talbot will be arriving on doormats over the next few days, ready for the local government elections on Thursday, May 3.

More than 24,000 postal votes have been issued.

Ballot papers will be arriving soon for postal voters.

Neath Port Talbot returning officer Steven Phillips said: “When you receive your postal voting pack, make sure you read and follow the instructions carefully before completing your ballot paper.

“Don’t forget to include your date of birth and signature on the postal voting statement. This statement is kept separately from your ballot paper so your vote is always secret.

“Follow the instructions in the pack to make sure your vote counts.”
Kay Jenkins, Head of the Wales Office at the Electoral Commission, the independent elections watchdog, has advised voters to make sure they return their ballot papers promptly.

“Postal ballot papers must be received by the local returning officer by 10pm on May 3 at the latest.

“So as soon as you have completed your ballot paper and postal vote statement, place it in the envelope and return it to make sure that it is received in good time.”
