New signature for voters needed

IN the coming weeks people living in East Lindsey who have received a postal, proxy or postal proxy vote since January 2007, will be required to provide a fresh specimen signature.

The district council will be writing to all those people concerned and is urging them to ensure they respond within six weeks.

Providing a new specimen signature is a legal requirement and if the council doesn’t receive one within the six weeks the existing absent vote entitlement has to be removed.

If you are not able to provide a consistent or distinctive signature, please contact the council’s elections team on 01506 601111 or e-mail elections@e-lindsey.gov.uk.
