postal voting
« on: May 23, 2017, 04:10:51 PM »
I get really annoyed everytime I use the postal voting system. I always thought that in this country your vote was private and confidential and yet you cannot vote unless you sign your name and date of birth and put it in with the voting envelope and both envelopes A and B have you personal number on the outside for everyone to see making it easy for any Tom Dick or Harry to know who has voted for who. Grrrr!

Ah, but only the people who open the envelopes get to see who you have voted for, and they're probably sworn to secrecy as part of their job. I've used the postal vote for years and never had a problem with it  (y)

Back in the 1970's I knew a few people who worked for the Social security Dept. and they had to sign the official secrets act , well.......

Daughter uses the Postal Vote and hubby and I have discussed this for us.
It won't be this time but I think next time will be the start of Postal Voting for us.

Got home from work today and ours were on the mat. Opened them, signed and dated them, 'x'ed a box each, sealed them, and nipped to the end of the street to the post box.
