If you’ve had a postal vote for more than five years, Stockport Council will be sending you a letter, asking you to sign your name again.
I had mine this morning. It just takes a minute to do it, but if you don’t then you’ll lose your postal vote (that’s the law!).
More and more people are voting by post – despite having to wrestle with A and B envelopes and slightly confusing instructions, it can be a lot quicker and more convenient than going down to the polling station. That’s doubly true if the weather’s bad.
So don’t lose your postal vote. Keep an eye out for the letter and sign and return the form quickly – you have until 12th March 2013.
(If you don’t return it in time, you lose your postal vote but you can always apply for another one).
