The story of your Ballot Pack

Preparation :
Following the announcement of candidates, postal ballot packs are prepared, printed and packed for posting to electors.

Delivery :
All electors will receive postal ballot packs in their letterboxes over a four-day period in the week after the announcement of candidates.

The postal ballot pack contains :
** ballot papers;
** a booklet containing candidate statements and voting instructions;
** a ballot paper envelope (this envelope must be signed by the elector to ensure ballot security); and
** a reply paid envelope for returning your ballot paper envelope which contains your completed ballot paper (voting won’t even cost a stamp)

Vote + Post back :
Electors have around three weeks (including three weekends) to complete their ballot paper and return it so that it can be included in the count.

To have their vote counted electors must :
** mark their preferences on the ballot paper;
** place the completed ballot paper in the ballot paper envelope (the envelope that has the elector’s name printed on it) and seal it;
** sign the ballot paper envelope in the box next to the elector’s name;
** place the ballot paper envelope in the reply paid envelope and seal it; and
** put the reply paid envelope in the post (no stamp required) so that it reaches the returning officer before the close of polling.

Return of Postal Votes

Electors have around three weeks (including three weekends) to complete their ballot paper and return it so that it can be included in the count.

To have their vote counted electors must :
** mark their preferences on the ballot paper;
** place the completed ballot paper in the ballot paper envelope (the envelope that has the elector’s name printed on it) and seal it;
** sign the ballot paper envelope in the box next to the elector’s name;
** place the ballot paper envelope in the reply paid envelope and seal it; and
** put the reply paid envelope in the post (no stamp required) so that it reaches the returning officer before the close of polling.

If electors can’t get it in the post in time, they can drop it in to the relevant council or the office of the returning officer before the 10am deadline.
