i was refused the right to vote today by Westminster City Council because apparently i opted for a postal vote which i believe i NEVER asked for and which I was supposed to have received via Royal Mail on 18th April which NEVER arrived. I am utterly disappointed and had to talk on a blackberry phone by a chief Polling administrator who in turn gave me an address – to Joanna Muldoon at Electorial Services at Westminster City Council, 64 Victoria Street London SW1E 6QP. I am putting Joanna’s name up just in case any other Westminster Residents also have the same problem. It is highly frustrating and an absolute disgrace that British Citizens are refused the right to vote because of this highly insecure method of receiving a voting form. Understandably not everyone has the time to attend a Polling station but to be refused the right to a political vote because you have not received a voting form is an absolute disgrace.
I have just sent a message to electoralservices@westminster.gov.uk

Dear Sir Madam,
please can you remove my name off the postal database so that I can vote in person – there was some confusion last night at the polling station on Paddington Street which was upsetting even though i had my official poll card with me and i was refused the right to vote. I want to be able to go to my local polling station and be able to vote without any future upset.
