FOI request (FOI218942)
Requested Thu 13 July 2017
Responded Thu 13 July 2017
I would like to know, please, how many postal votes for last month's General Election were received by the council for the Hastings and Rye parliamentary constituency AFTER the deadline for their return, and were therefore not counted.
In addition, I would like to know how many postal votes received BEFORE the deadline were not counted in the final tally; please also provide a breakdown of the reasons for their non-inclusion (e.g. missing signature).
This information is reported to the Electoral Commission only on behalf of the Acting Returning Officer and will form part of their reporting on the administration of parliamentary election. Please contact the Electoral Commission for further information, either by email at email@example.com, by phone on 0333 103 1928 or by writing to them at 3 Bunhill Row, London EC1Y 8YZ.
