Voters in Perth and Kinross who are registered for a postal vote will receive their postal ballot packs for the Scottish Independence Referendum this week.
Postal voting is available for anyone – you do not need a reason to vote by post. You can apply for a postal vote for a particular election, for a set period of time, or for a permanent postal vote. Postal voting means that you can vote at home. Your ballot paper is sent to your home address. Once completed you return your vote by post to the address provided.
To apply to vote by post, visit the Tayside Valuation Joint Boad website (www.tayside-vjb.gov.uk ), or contact your local Electoral Registration Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01738 630303. You can also download postal voting application forms in other languages from www.aboutmyvote.co.uk
The deadline to request a new postal vote, or to change or cancel an existing postal vote for the Scottish Independence Referendum is 5pm on Wednesday 3 September 2014.
In order for your postal voting statement to be valid you must sign it and enter your date of birth where indicated. If you have been granted a waiver then you need only enter your date of birth. This form cannot be signed on your behalf – you must sign it yourself. The completed postal voting statement must be returned with your ballot paper for your vote to be valid.[cardoza_wp_poll id=7]
