(when you name somebody else to vote for you) in the London
referendum on 7 May. London voters were reminded by Nick Raynsford, minister for London, to make sure their applications are in by 5pm on Tuesday 21 April if they are not able to vote in person on the day.
Mr Raynsford said: 'Many Londoners will not be able to get to their polling station between 8am and 9pm on 7 May but they can still have their chance to say yes' or no' to the government's proposals for an
post or proxy but time is running out as all applications must be in
by 5pm on Tuesday.
'The decision on 7 May will affect all Londoners and I want to
ensure that London voters have every opportunity to take part.
Boroughs are reporting more applications than usual as it's easy to
apply just fill in a simple form.'
Any London voter needing an absent vote should contact their own
borough electoral registration office now for a form or fill in the
one sent to every London household inside the leaflet summarising the
Government's proposals. The form can also be downloaded from the
London Decides Internet site.
1 All applications to vote by post or proxy should be sent or
taken to the electoral registration officer of the borough where
the voter is registered.
2 Forms can be obtained from the London Decides Internet site at
http://www.london-decides.detr.gov.uk. A copy was inside the leaflet
summarising the government's proposals which was sent to every
London household at the end of March.
