RESIDENTS who have not renewed their postal vote signature for more than five years are being urged to provide a fresh signature.
Every year, Tameside Council is legally required to write to all absent voters, either postal or proxy, whose signatures are more than five years old on January 31, asking them to provide a fresh signature.
Forms for the signature renewal were sent out on January 24 and reminders are now being sent to those who have not yet responded.
If you receive one of these reminder forms then please ensure you return it as soon as possible using the pre-paid envelope. If no fresh signature, capable of being scanned, is received by March 7 then you will lose your current entitlement to vote by post.
If you have a disability which means you cannot provide a signature or sign in a consistent way, please contact us for advice and we should be able to help.
The requirement is to reduce the possibility of electoral fraud. When you are sent a postal vote for an election, you are required to provide your signature and date of birth on a postal voting statement. These are checked against those you provide on your postal vote application form to ensure your vote cannot be used by someone else. An important part of these security measures is providing a fresh signature every five years as signatures and circumstances can change over time.
