If you have not received - or only just received - you postal vote, here is what you should do

Any Calderdale voter who has applied for a postal vote before the application deadline who has not received it should contact the council as soon as possible.

Calderdale goes to the polls tomorrow (Thursday, May 6)

Calderdale Council says it is aware some voters have experienced delays in receiving their postal votes, due to circumstances beyond the council’s control.

Robin Tuddenham, Chief Executive of Calderdale Council and Returning Officer, said: “We are aware that a small number of voters have experienced delays in receiving their postal votes, due to circumstances beyond our control, but we understand that the majority of these arrived on Saturday.

“Anyone who registered for a postal vote by the deadline of 5pm on April 20, and has not received their vote, should contact us on [email protected] or call us on 01422 393103.

“We are responding to anyone who has not received their vote by reissuing and delivering a replacement to them.

“Whilst they can post this vote today if they wish, they can take it to any Calderdale polling station or Halifax Town Hall by 10pm tomorrow (Thursday 6 May – polling day).”

As well as going to the polls for Calderdale Council seats, voters will also be voting in the inaugural elections for a West Yorkshire Mayor and depending on which part of Calderdale you live in, there are some parish council by-elections being contested too.
