Ballot papers for this election are due to be sent to party members this coming week. Voting will be by post and also website voting will be available. The ballot closes at noon on 5 August.
This is the biggest paper ballot the Labour Party has ever run, with almost 400,000 ballot papers to be distributed. Ballots will therefore be dispatched on a phased basis, with papers and emails going out in waves over a number of days. It is expected that most electronic (email) codes will have been sent to everybody by Friday 15th July and most paper ballots to have dropped onto doormats by Friday 22nd July. The Party would urge those who are expecting a ballot not to contact the party unless they have still not received a ballot by Wednesday 27th July. If this is the case, you should call the membership team on 0345 092 2299.
