Postal voting papers set for distribution next week

THOSE CHOOSING TO take up the postal voting option for the general election on June 8 will be issued with their ballot papers next week.

The returning officer for the Moray constituency, Mark Palmer, has said that the first issue of nearly 14,200 papers will be sent on Tuesday.

That is also the final deadline for postal vote applications – a second issue of remaining postal vote papers will be sent on May 31.

All postal ballot papers must be returned by the time polls close at 10pm on election day – June 8. Mr Palmer has advised postal voters to ensure that they have read and followed the instructions carefully before completing and returning their ballot paper.
