Postal Vote turnout is about 80% - ballot box election day voting is about 30% at locals, rising to 60% at general elections.
If you are a Lib-Dem supporter, we want to encourage you to vote.
You are more likely to vote if you have a postal vote, hence the PV form.
The form is a standard Electoral Commission form.
We've asked for it to be returned to us, so we can check for errors before we take it to Southwark Council
's Electoral Services office.
The law says it's only valid if it's submitted within three days of you signing it. (I think)
Even if you have a postal vote, you can still take your postal vote to the polling station on election day if you want.
So, if you apply for a postal vote, it saves us both time. It also increases the chances of you voting, in case you are sick, working or on holiday. It also increases the chances of your local team and Simon getting elected.
