IF you have registered for a postal vote for the General election on July 4, your postal vote pack should arrive later this week.

Wirral Council says anyone who applied for a postal vote after May 31, but before the application deadline of June 19, will have their postal vote pack sent to them on June 26.

A statement from the authority said: "The date you receive your postal pack will depend on the speed of the postal service and where you are, particularly if you are an overseas voter.

"It is your responsibility to ensure that your postal vote and returned and received by Wirral’s elections team by 10pm on election day.

"If you aren’t able to post it in time, you can hand it in to your polling station by 10pm on election day."
