Council issue 11,500 poll cards with wrong constituency
A council has apologised after sending out thousands of poll cards with the wrong constituency on.
Thanet District Council has confirmed it issued 11,500 poll cards last week that stated the North Thanet rather than the South Thanet constituency.
A spokesperson apologised for any inconvenience caused and put the mistake down to a ‘clerical error’.
‘This does not affect residents’ right to vote and the rest of the information contained on the poll card, including the location of their polling station, was all correct,’ the spokesperson said.
The poll cards in question cover nine villages surrounding Dover.
