The Council and democracy Postal votes

Spoilt and lost postal ballot papers

You can ask for a replacement if you have not received, or have lost, damaged or spoilt your postal vote. Replacements can only be issued from a week before the election, up to 5pm on polling day. Contact the elections team on 0161 234 1212 (Monday to Friday 8am to 5pm) to request a replacement postal pack.

If you have made a mistake on your ballot paper or postal vote statement, simply correcting the mistake is usually acceptable and we will not need to issue a replacement. If you do need a replacement postal ballot paper pack due to it being badly damaged, you will need to bring the original one to our office, so do not throw it away.
