Ballot papers for postal voters will be arriving on doormats over the next few days, ready for the UK Parliamentary Election on Thursday 7 May.
In the first issue of postal votes, over 10,000 packs have been sent out. Fiona Lees, the Returning Officer for the Kilmarnock and Loudoun Parliamentary Constituency, 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 to make sure your vote counts.”
Postal ballot papers must be received by the Returning Officer by 10pm on 7 May at the latest. So as soon as you have completed your ballot paper and postal vote statement, place it in the envelope provided and return it to make sure that it is received in good time.
Postal ballot papers can also be returned to a local polling station within the Kilmarnock and Loudoun Constituency by 10pm on the day of the election
