General Election: postal vote packs are being sent out

Publication date:

Postal vote packs are now being issued to voters in St Albans District for the General Election on Thursday 4 July.

Packs for voters who applied for a postal vote before Friday 31 May were sent out around Friday 14 June. 

Those who apply between Friday 31 May and the deadline of 5pm on Wednesday 19 June will be sent their packs between Monday 24 and Wednesday 26 June. 

The packs will include a white ballot paper with the names of the candidates.

Voters are advised to return completed votes as soon as possible. They must be received by the Acting Returning Officer by 10pm on Thursday 4 July to be counted. 

St Albans City and District Council is responsible for two UK Parliamentary constituencies: St Albans; and Harpenden and Berkhamsted.

Voters with a postal vote in place will not be able to vote in person at a polling station.

If you do miss the post, you can hand in your completed postal vote as well as those of up to five other voters to the Civic Centre, St Peter’s Street, St Albans, during office hours.

Alternatively, they can be handed in at any polling station in the electoral area between 7am and 10pm on Thursday 4 July.

Anybody returning completed postal vote packs by hand must complete a short form. 

If you have not received your postal vote by Friday 28 June, contact the Council’s Electoral Services team on or 01727 819294.

If you lose your postal vote or make a mistake, contact the team immediately as a replacement can only be issued before 5pm on Thursday 4 July.

Campaigners should be aware that new restrictions apply to their handling of postal votes. Information on that is available here.
