We have become aware of an issue where electors may not have received their postal vote ballot pack. Accordingly we are issuing replacement postal vote ballot packs where we are contacted by the elector.
We as a council have done all we can to assist those whose postal ballot papers have not arrived and who have informed us of this. The Council can confirm all postal vote information was delivered to our print suppliers on time and the packs should have been delivered as usual. NEDDC is now working with Royal Mail and the Council’s print suppliers to investigate what has happened.
If you haven’t yet received your postal vote ballot pack, please contact the Electoral Services Team on 01246 217068 or 01246 217069.
The deadline for contacting the council for a replacement postal vote ballot pack is 5pm Thursday 4 May.
Postal votes can be handed in at any polling station in the district up until 10pm Thursday 4 May.
There may be an answerphone, so pleased be prepared to leave a voicemail message including name, address and telephone number and a member of the Electoral Services Team will respond to the elector as soon as reasonably possible.
When electors receive their replacement postal vote ballot pack, they can be also be returned to the District Council Offices, 2013 Mill Lane, Wingerworth, Chesterfield, S42 6NG or to your Polling Station on Thursday 4 May 2023 during the hours of poll of 7am to 10pm.
