Poll Day Vote YES: Delivery Points and Replacement Ballots

Replacement Ballot Papers

Until 5pm tomorrow, Thursday you can get a replacement for a lost, damaged ballot OR get a ballot if one did not arrive in the post. You must be on the current electoral rolls being used for the exercise. Most of these are bang up to date but there are one or two authorities who have not caught up.

If you would like a replacement ballot paper you will need to visit the Office of the Returning Officer at Manchester Town Hall with appropriate identification. Appropriate identification is:

* full valid current passport
* photocard driving licence
* local bus pass
* student card
* identity card issued by a local employer

The Office of the Returning Officer is open for this purpose between 9am - 5pm on ballot day.

Please not it is only possible to issue replacement ballot papers to individual eligible voters and multiple ballot papers will not be issued.

What is the deadline for voting?

You need to ensure your ballot paper and declaration are received by the Returning Officer no later than 10pm on Thursday 11 December. If you have left it too late to post your ballot paper back you can drop your pack in to any of a number of delivery points across Greater Manchester but only between 7am and 10pm on 11 December.

Where are the delivery points?
