How do I vote by post?
If you have applied for a postal vote, you should receive your ballot in the next week.
Once you have received it, mark your vote on the ballot paper and make sure you send it back so that it arrives by 10pm on the day of the election or referendum. If it arrives later than this, your vote won't be counted.
The address to send it to will be on your postal vote.
If you forget to send it in time for it to arrive by 10pm on 8th June, you can take it directly to your polling station and it will still be counted.
Don't forget to return your vote!

On Monday 24 April we kicked off our campaign in style.
Our brand new office, opened especially for the duration of the campaign, was filled with enthusiastic volunteers who are ready and willing to get out onto the streets of Wirral South and make sure we hold it for Our Alison.
Alison gave a warm welcome to the volunteers who will be helping to re-elect her on June 8th, thanking them for their support over the coming weeks, and all the hard work they would put into ensuring her re-election as the MP for Wirral South. We celebrated with cake before everyone went out on the doors to meet voters and spread the word about Alison's campaign.
Alison's supporters came from the local area and all over Wirral, because they understand how important this election is in protecting our community from the Tories. We have already seen the havoc this Tory government will cause, putting our jobs and services at risk and failing to provide the funds we need to keep our schools and hospitals running as they should. This is clearer than ever after the New Ferry explosion, which highlights the disregard the Tories have for our local communities as they postpone action for the election.
It is never too late to offer your support in any capacity that you are able to. The campaign office is based at 57 New Chester Road in New Ferry. If you want to knock on doors, phone or leaflet to canvass support for Alison then you can do so by attending the sessions which will be held at 11am, 1.30pm, 3.30pm, and 6pm daily and will run from the newly launched campaign office. You can give the campaign a call on 07711128036.
The support that has already been shown has been amazing and Alison looks forward to seeing you in the coming weeks. Come and join us.

The community of New Ferry is continuing to pull together following the explosion on March 25.
The amount of financial and material donations has been fantastic and I want to thank all those who have offered help. I also want to thank those who have organised fundraising events. The fundraising success has been something to be very proud of.
I know that people are still coming to terms with what happened and the damage that has been done to their homes and businesses but there has been some progress made.
With the police cordon now removed the council have been able to access the site to assess the damage that has been caused to buildings. Where possible people have been returned to their homes and businesses have re-opened. However the recovery is obviously ongoing and there is still much to be done to support New Ferry after what happened.
I recently met with the charity PHAB whose building was sadly destroyed in the explosion. They have now moved into the Co-Op building on New Chester Road that has been closed since the Co-Op branch in New Ferry closed down. I accompanied PHAB representatives to a visit to the Co-Op and it is great to see the building being used in such a positive way for the community. The charity supports people of all abilities to enjoy their life and they offer a range of activities for people to get involved in.
My thoughts are with those who are still suffering the effects of what happened especially those who sustained injuries.
Following my question to the Prime Minister at Prime Minister’s Questions asking what support the government can offer I have now met with the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government. Discussions were positive but because of the announcement of a snap general election the government cannot take any decisions. I will be making sure everyone knows New Ferry regeneration must go ahead.
The election that the government have just called is an important one for our country. In the aftermath of the EU referendum Britain needed a period of stability and unity for people to come together and to plan for the future outside the European Union.
Instead Theresa May has chosen to divide the country, first by pursuing a divisive hard Brexit and now by calling a divisive general election. This election is about the short term political objectives of the Conservative Party, not the long term interests of Britain or the people of Wirral South.
It has been an honour to represent the people of Wirral South for the last seven years in parliament and I will be fighting to continue to serve them in the general election.
The people of Wirral South need an MP who puts them first, who fights for their public services and who has the experience to champion them in parliament.
