West Berkshire Council

Absent Vote Signature Refresh

Refreshing the signatures held for postal or proxy votes

We hold specimen signatures and dates of birth for everyone in West Berkshire who has an absent vote, also known as a postal or proxy vote. These are supplied as part of the original application process and used for comparison when a voter completes their postal or proxy vote at election time. 

We are required to obtain a new specimen signature approximately every five years, as signatures often change over time.

The last refresh was carried out in early 2019.
