What to do if you make a mistake on a postal vote or a postal voting statement
If you've marked the wrong candidate by mistake, this doesn't mean you have spoiled your ballot paper. Cross out the mistake and mark the candidate you want to vote for. Do not sign or initial your correction as this will invalidate your ballot. People count the ballot papers so, as long as your voting intention is clear, your vote will still count.
If you've written incorrect information on the postal voting statement, you can cross this out and correct it if you have space.
If you need a replacement ballot pack, the earliest you can apply is 4 working days before the election. You can still apply up until 5pm on election day.
Apply in person at Hove Town Hall, and bring your spoilt ballot paper and postal voting statement.
If you lose or do not receive your postal vote
