Registering to vote in the forthcoming UK General Election

Post by curmudgeon » Tue Nov 05, 2019 12:28 am

To register from abroad see: https://www.gov.uk/voting-when-abroad

You might consider a postal vote, but due to the short space of time before the election, a proxy vote might be a better bet.

Thanks @curmudgeon for that. Deadline for registration is 26 November according to a Facebook group. The suggestion about a proxy is a good one - parents, siblings etc could do this for you.
Vienna is like an Ikea sofa - you know you should upgrade, but why bother when it is this comfortable.

Getting my rentals to do a proxy vote. Hope that the self-servative MP will get booted out, although not convinced the rest of the constituency will change their minds in sufficiently large numbers.

Apparently there again delays in postal votes getting sent out due to the fact that the candidate lists were only finalised around 16th.

Yes. Seems like the situation was made worse by lots of candidates announcing they would stand and then being stood down.
