                            One Ballot Paper

                            One ballot paper envelope


SCHEDULE 4—continued

If you are unable to cast your vote on the ballot paper without assistance, please follow the instructions provided under the heading ‘How to Complete Your Assisted Postal Vote’.

 

 

How to Complete Your Postal Vote

 

The following steps must be completed to ensure that your vote is counted:

 

1.      Show your unmarked ballot paper and unmarked postal vote certificate envelope to an authorised witness.

         The authorised witness must have attained 18 years of age, and must not be a candidate in the election nor a person expressly authorised to act on behalf of such a candidate in connection with the election.

 

2.      Sign your name on the postal vote certificate envelope in the space provided, in the presence of the authorised witness.

 

3.      The authorised witness must now sign and date the certificate, and print their name and address in the spaces provided.

 

4.      In the presence of the authorised witness, cast your vote on the ballot paper according to the instructions provided on the ballot paper.

 

         DO NOT let the witness or any other person present see how you have voted unless you request their assistance.


SCHEDULE 4—continued

 

5.      Insert your ballot paper in the ballot paper envelope, seal the envelope and insert it in the envelope upon which the postal vote certificate has been completed and seal that envelope. Either post the completed postal vote certificate envelope or arrange for it to be delivered to the Returning Officer (the envelope is already addressed) by 6pm on Polling Day.

 

To the Elector Who Requires Assistance to Vote:

 

If your sight is so impaired, or through other cause, your ability to read or write is such that you cannot vote without assistance, you may appoint another person to cast your vote on the ballot paper for you.

 

 

Who may provide assistance?

 

You may appoint any person to assist you, provided that the person is not a candidate in the election, nor a person expressly authorised to act on behalf of such a candidate in connection with the election. If you wish, you may appoint the authorised witness to assist you.

 

 

How is the privacy of your vote maintained?

 

Under the Local Government Act, an authorised witness must not look at, or make themself acquainted with your vote, or permit any other person to do so. Only the person that you have appointed to assist you may know how you have voted.

 

Unless required by law, the authorised witness or the person you appoint to assist you must not disclose your vote.

 

 

 


SCHEDULE 4—continued

 

How to Complete Your Assisted Postal Vote

 

1.      The person appointed to assist you must cast the vote that you wish to cast on the ballot paper, in the presence of the authorised witness, unless the authorised witness is the person that you have appointed to assist you, in which case the authorised witness may cast the vote that you wish to cast in your presence alone.

 

2.      The appointed person must then insert the ballot paper in the ballot paper envelope, seal the envelope and place it inside the envelope upon which the postal vote certificate has been completed.

 

3.      The postal vote certificate envelope must then be sealed and handed to you.

 

4.      You must post the envelope or arrange for it to be delivered to the Returning Officer at the address marked on the envelope by 6pm on Polling Day.
