General Election?

Recommended Posts

Guest Hobo

When are the general elections for scotland and the uk?

I ask because last week I received a voter registration form, filled it out and sent it back and today I got a letter saying

"the annual householders form was recently returned to which your name has been added. Unfortunately, this was received too late for inclusion in the register.

You may be added as a supplementary elector, if you wish by completing and returning the enclosed voter registration form. Yours, E.R.O"

There was no prepaid envelope in this one though, if I send it in an unstamped envelope will they get it anyway, by way of them paying postage when it arrives?

General election could be any time before May 2010, Scottish Election in 2011. European parliament elections are next year (4 June).

Thanks, any idea why this part would be in the letter? Surely they cannot be as incompetent as this might suggest? Can they?

I'm guessing it's not incompetence as such (unless perhaps on your part by not returning the form when they first sent it to you) but more a legislative deadline. Elections take a lot of organisation and I imagine they wanted everyone registered at the correct address before now so they could get stuff ready for euro elections in the first half of next year.

Probably contacting the Electoral Roll Officer would get you more information than asking here.

Bit strange, they are updated every month now, not just yearly. Anyhoo, it's not just relevant for general/European elections etc, one of your representatives could drop down dead tomorrow and then there would be a by-election.

Speaking of elections, I have the right to either vote in Scotland, England or in Poland for next year's Euro elections...which do I choose? This bizzare situation arose because although I'm registered to vote in Scotland (as my permanent address is still there), they said that I'd be allowed to transfer to England as I maintain an address there, and yet as I'm residing in Poland, I've got the right to vote in Euro-elections here.

Nonsense :/

Things you may have noticed on here:

1. Clyde is now living in Poland.

2. Hog has a slight receding hairline.

3. Lester Burnham is in a relationship.

There may be the occasional mention of this on various threads...

:D

Obtaining temporary residency was hard enough...I don't even want to think what permanent residency involves :down: I've met enough people who can't even get temporary residency as their landlord won't allow them to register as residing in the flat - and so are here illegally. It's supposed to be changing in the new year, but...

I swear, on one hand, it's fantastic that civil servants are easily accessible here, but on the other hand, they seem to specialise in the kind of misery that only the Jobcentre in the UK can hope to rival.
