Voters who wish to vote by post and have not yet done so have a few days to submit their application online on the Correos website or in person at the post office.
The deadline for requesting this vote ends tomorrow, Thursday 13 July, and citizens who decide to do so will have to pay attention to the documentation sent to them by Correos in order to exercise their right to vote in a post office on the 20th at the latest.
The postal company reminds that in the application form it is necessary to indicate the address where the Electoral Census Office will send the documentation, since if this has not been done, the law establishes that it will be sent to the residence where the voter is registered.
However, Correos has informed that it is possible to ask for the documentation to be sent to another address even if it has already been requested and even received, but warns that this must be done in sufficient time for the entity to send the envelopes and ballot papers to the new location.
The delivery of the electoral documentation, which began on 3 July, will last until the 16th, so citizens who decide to wait until the last moment will only have 3 days to receive the envelopes and ballot papers.
According to the trade unions, more than 2.5 million postal vote applications will be received in these general elections.
On 5 July, they reported that the number of postal vote requests had already “far exceeded” 2 million.
Voters requesting a postal vote in offices will have to prove their identity by showing theirDNI or other similar identification document so that Correos operators can check that the signature coincides with the one on the application.
In the event of illness or incapacity that prevents this, the voter may delegate the postal vote request to another person authorised by notary or consular means.
