This is good advice - so where are the instructions for appointing a proxy? (Not useful to me, as it stands at the moment, since I've been non UK resident for too long!)

General Discussion / Voting in a UK snap election
« Last post by levissima on September 16, 2019, 10:08:07 AM »
I?ve just received this info from British in Italy, so if you want to vote and are eligible to do so, it?s worth considering a proxy vote.

Here?s the info

As you may have seen from recent media coverage, there is a strong possibility that the UK Parliament will call a snap election. I am writing to you as a registered overseas elector to advise you of the tight legislative and operational timetable which we must work to in such circumstances. From the Prime Minister?s declaration to hold an Election, Returning Officers must deliver an election within 25 working days.

The nomination period takes up the first six days and only after this period has elapsed can we instruct Printers to prepare Ballot Paper proofs, final artwork and proceed to print. Typically, this process takes between 5 and 7 days which results in the Returning Officer not receiving ballot papers for distribution until 14 days prior to the election.

Given the ?snap? nature of a possible future election, the time available for distribution and return of a Ballot Paper is limited.

Legislation does not permit the electronic distribution of Ballot Papers and therefore ALL Ballot Papers which must be sent to addresses outside the UK are sent via Air Mail and include an international pre-paid return envelope. Equally, electronic return is NOT permitted. Only Ballot Papers received by the Returning Officer by 10pm on election day can be included in the Count.

Given the above, you may wish to mitigate any possible delays in delivery or return by appointing a proxy to vote in the UK on your behalf.

Kind Regards,
Electoral Services Support Officer

Thank you so much mFiamberti ..... still not sure what we are doing yet I suppose so much depends on what happens in the UK this year?

Such a shame because I love it here.

Just requested a quote online. Reassuringly, the replies are bilingual as my Italian is fine for a conversation, not good enough for anything contractual :)
