Enrolling Postal Voters

All of us involved in elections and the democratic process should encourage people to participate. In my little corner of West Kent we are very proactive at signing-up postal voters. With an ageing population and ever increasing numbers of people working unsocial hours or in jobs which involve a long commute, postal voting often provides the only realistic way for them to participate.

Each year we write to a selection of voters and offer them a postal vote. In doing so we adhere to the Electoral Commission's 'best practice'. The letter goes out in the name of the leader of the Conservative Group on the Borough Council. All costs (printing and distribution) are, or course, financed by the Association at no cost to public funds.

Here is this years letter and enclosure.
