Postal and Proxy Voting
Postal Voting Security Arrangements
Under new laws (the Electoral Administration Act 2006) anyone
who holds an absent vote must supply a specimen of their signature
and their date of birth.
All new applications for postal votes must include
the person's date of birth and signature in a specified area
on the form.
All personal information will be stored securely and will
be used to check the validity of the postal vote. This is to help
prevent electoral fraud and will assist in deterring misuse of
someone's entitlement to vote.
