This is now a new question to find out if some local authorities only sent out the bulk of their postal ballot papers on the LAST day allowed by law - Wednesday 27th April. I think ARRSErs will understand the reasons behind the question, and remember how effective a previous survey has been. ALL POSTAL VOTERS whether in UK, overseas, serving or civilian are welcome to 'post' their reports. The poll at the top of this page is about when postal ballot paperwork arrived at UK addresses. I suggest dont take part in the poll if you know there is a good reason for the paperwork arriving late in your case. It would be helpful if you can mention the constituency; and if overseas: the country, and whether BFPO or civ mail. Many postal voters will not currently be in the constituency, so PERSEC should not be a problem in many cases, but PM me if you prefer the info to be 'anonymised'. Or firstname.lastname@example.org You are welcome to mention the political complexion of the local Council which sent out the paperwork, if known. If not I can work it out later if you name the constituency. Sorry if all this sounds complicated but it isnt really, and could be very useful. Post-election note for researchers etc: Ignore the above poll, which was only intended to get initial indications of when the postal votes had been sent out by the Councils. Information as to when the votes reached personnel in Iraq, Northern Ireland and elsewhere will be found later in this thread.
