Preseli Pembrokeshire and Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire have now received the second issue of regional ballot papers for the Welsh Assembly election on 5th May. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The original postal vote ballot papers for the Mid and West Wales Region – which were sent out several days ago – contained a printing error which rendered them invalid. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

In the instructions at the top it incorrectly stated ‘vote for only one candidate by putting a cross (x) in the box next to your choice’. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The instruction should have read: ‘vote only once by putting a cross (x) in the box next to your choice’. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Postal voters are requested to destroy the original regional ballot paper only and to complete and return the reissued Mid and West Wales Regional Ballot paper in the envelope provided. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

If postal voters do not return the reissued ballot paper, their vote will not be counted. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Any of the original, incorrect postal ballot papers which postal voters may already have completed and returned, will not be counted. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The remaining ballot papers received by postal voters – namely for the constituency and the Police and Crime Commissioner election – are unaffected and should be returned as originally instructed. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Postal voters in the Ceredigion, Preseli Pembrokeshire and Carmarthen West/South Pembrokeshire constituencies who have queries on this matter should ring the following telephone numbers: ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

  • 01545 572032 (for Ceredigion)
  • 01437 775844 (for Preseli Pembrokeshire and Carmarthen West/South Pembrokeshire).
