PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A Kirklees councillor fighting to retain his wafer-thin seat in Tuesday's election has complained that he has been contacted by supporters who have not received postal votes. Bernard McGuin, (Con, Almondbury), said: "I have been rung by supporters who have not received postal votes. "Electoral Services are supposed to send out a duplicate voting form over the weekend and Bank Holiday Monday to replace non-delivered votes. "As people are registered for postal votes, if their ballot paper does not arrive, they are not allowed, as I understand it, to vote a polling station. "People are confused as to whether to wait for the voting papers to come, (but that is now leaving it until Tuesday as Royal Mail are not working on Monday), or ring up for a new ballot paper which is supposed to be delivered by hand by staff who, I have been told, are working the weekend and on the Bank Holiday.

. "We have been in contact with senior officers in Royal Mail to discuss the non-delivery, the number of which appears to be a relatively small number spread across all wards. "We are receiving phone calls from electors and we are offering and sending out replacement packs. "This process involves cancellation of the original pack, reissue and renumbering of new packs Clr Bernard McGuin "Where possible we are posting out via Royal Mail with the agreement of the elector. "We are also arranging for personal delivery by our staff over the bank holiday weekend. We have arranged for our telephones to be on over the weekend (Saturday and Bank Holiday Monday). "There appears to no pattern that can be identified and whilst we are still in discussion with Royal Mail we now need to concentrate on replacement of any packs that have not been delivered. "The chief executive, (Jacqui Gedman), is aware and we will revisit this on Tuesday and I will update at that point."
