No, if someone is registered as a postal voter for this election then they will not be able to vote in person at a polling station. They will need to obtain a replacement postal vote.
No, this does not invalidate your vote. We need to receive both the completed PVS, and Envelope A containing your ballot papers, for your vote to be valid. So if you have accidentally detached the PVS, just pop this and Envelope A together into the Envelope B and post it all back.
Don't worry - this is fine. Please just score out the mistake and complete the correct PVS with your own signature and your date of birth. When we scan all the returned PVS our computer will flag up any discrepancies and an officer will look at them to compare the PVS received with the master copy we hold on file - which is the form you submitted when requesting a postal vote.
Please score out any mistakes you have made on the PVS and enter the correct details. As explained in question 4 our systems will flag this up and an officer will verify your postal vote against our original records.
Open up Envelope B turn the contents around so that the Returning Officer's address is displayed in the address window and then reseal Envelope B with some Sellotape - to keep the contents secure when posting.
You may have accidentally put the postal vote into Envelope B the wrong way round - meaning your address was shown in the window. If this happens please follow the steps in Question 6 above to open Envelope B, change the address around and seal to resend it. If Envelope B has been damaged in transit to you please let us know so we can send you a new Envelop B to return it. Contact us on 0141 287 4444.
Please get in touch with us on 0141 287 4444 and we can send you a new replacement envelope.
Please get in touch with us on 0141 287 4444 and we will cancel your original postal vote and send out a replacement.
Don't worry - mistakes on ballot papers can be rectified without issuing you with a replacement postal vote. All you need to do is score out your mistake and then put a single cross where want it to be. Please note: it is very important that you DO NOT INITIAL your changes though as this would invalidate your vote as it could be used to identify you. Your changes will be accepted as long as it is clear what your intention is on your submitted postal vote.
Yes you can hand in your postal vote to a physical polling station as long as it's a polling place within the Glasgow City Council boundary - preferably within your own constituency. You can also hand in your postal vote to the Election Office at 40 John Street, Glasgow G1 1JL.
