I am unable to sign either the Postal Vote Application Form or Postal Vote Statement.

The postal voting application form will ask for an explanation of why you can't sign your application.

Please ask your helper to complete the relevant box and return the form to Electoral Services.

We will then send a waiver form for completion by your helper.

When you receive your postal voting statement the word waiver will be printed in the box and your signature will not be required when you return your postal vote.

If the word waiver doesn't appear, unless you have time to make a new postal voting application or apply for a proxy vote (where you nominate someone to vote on your behalf at your polling station) you will now have to sign in some way. 

Please try to partly sign using elements such as the initials of your old signature and ask someone to write an explanation of what you have done on the statement.

Do you have a question?

If there is anything you would like to ask us, about our services, our work or how we can help you, then please do.
