Residents asked: ‘Where will you be on election day?’
On 12 December 2019, voters in Telford and Wrekin will have their say on who represents them in Parliament.
But if you’re not in the borough on 12 December, why not apply for a postal vote? If you haven’t yet applied for a postal vote, you have until 26 November to do so.
Already more than 35,000 people in the two constituencies – almost a one in three of voters here - have chosen to vote by post.
If you’re away on business, on holiday or just have other commitments that mean you can’t get to your nearest polling station between 7am and 10pm on 12th December, there’s no reason you have to miss out on having your say on who represents you.
A postal vote is very easy to arrange. Just call the Council’s Helpline on 01952 383206 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or go to https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/apply-for-a-postal-vote to apply for a form and return it to Telford & Wrekin Council.
Applications for a postal vote will need to reach the Returning Officer by 5pm on 26 November.
Acting Returning Officer, Jonathan Eatough, said: “It’s really quick and straightforward to apply for a postal vote.
“There’s nothing to stop anyone in the borough from having their say on 12 December.”
Residents have until next Tuesday (26 November) to register to vote.
Anyone who has not registered can do it here: www.gov.uk/register-to-vote. Paper application forms are available on request for anyone without internet access.
