Update on postal ballot packs


We are continuing to do everything we can to ensure the 1,510 people in Plymouth who did not receive their postal vote pack are able to vote.

We have already delivered replacement postal voting packs to more than half of those who hadn’t received one and are making special deliveries this morning to the remainder of people whose postal addresses are in the three constituencies.

We are also making arrangements to get postal vote packs to as many people as possible who have a postal address outside the three constituencies.

Anyone who applied for a postal vote and did not receive their postal vote pack before going away should ring us.

People receiving their postal vote packs today can return their ballots by:

  • Post – all ballots must be received by 10pm on Thursday
  • Bringing them to the Council House where polling booths have been set up
  • Taking them to a polling station in one of the three constituencies on Thursday.

If anyone who applied for a postal vote has not received a pack by lunchtime on Wednesday, or has any queries about postal voting, they should contact us on 304866 or 304936. Lines are open between 7am and 10pm.

Replacement postal vote packs can also be issued from the Council House and we ask that people phone before arriving.

We can issue replacement post voting packs until 5pm on polling day (Thursday), which is the legal deadline. All ballot papers issued must be received back by 10pm on Thursday.

We apologise to anyone affected by this problem. We will continue to do everything possible to ensure people who applied to vote by post can do so.
