Elections: Postal Votes

Volume 692: debated on Tuesday 5 June 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether there is a need to alter the timetable for future elections to provide more time to deal with the dispatch and receipt of postal votes. [HL3718]

There are currently no plans to amend the timetable for either local or national elections. However, we will wish to consider, in the light of the Electoral Commission's reports on the recent elections and discussions with stakeholders, whether there may be sufficient justification to extend the timetable for the administration of elections in the future.
