Postal, proxy, out of the UK screw up. I was voting remain so if any leavers want to stay at home to balance me, that would be great.

AIBU? He he he.

I was hoping for two or three.

This is the third proxy vote muck up I've heard of (and the other two are people I know personslly). To be fai it seems to be working both ways but I wonder how big of an issue it is.

Can't help, I already found a brexit for my vote swap. Aren't a lot around out of the expats I'm with!

For trying to broker a vote-swap, I mean.

Not "bless you for trying to vote". Obviously. blushhmmblush

Bless me! 😄

They clearly don't want us forriners to vote. Can't say as I blame them.

Sent my postal vote off weeks ago. General Election was another matter though, doubt it got there in time!

Try contacting the Elections Office of where you should be voting, they have the power to issue votes late, although I'm not 100% sure how it works with overseas voters, I believe up until about 5pm UK time. I'm about to go and work as poll clerk, long day ahead!

Ooo good tip. Although 5pm there is 10am here so I'll be in meetings before that.

I had similar with the general election last year. I registered for a postal vote from overseas and it never arrived, not,even late! This time I got my voting papers in plenty of time so I reckon the general election ones were never even sent. Not uncommon I fear.
