Hull City Council has hand-delivered replacement postal ballot packs to all electors affected by an earlier error that had resulted in them being sent packs which had the names of two candidates missing.
A printing error had seen 484 electors sent General Election ballot papers with the names of Hull East Constituency candidates Karl Turner, standing for Labour, and Sarah Walpole, standing for the Green Party missing.
Replacement packs were hand-delivered on Thursday 30 April - two days after electors would have received the invalid papers.
Robust processes have also been put in place to identify any invalid ballot papers that are returned to ensure that they are replaced by the valid papers, once received.
A printing error in Hull is prompting concerns that some voters could potentially miss out on their chance to select their preferred candidate for next week's General Election. People in the Hull East constituency who registered for a postal vote after the first of April have received a form that doesn't include two of the candidates. This has been put down to a mistake from the printing supplier and new forms will be sent out as Michael Billington reports.
This is the full list of candidates in Hull East:
- Richard Barrett (UKIP)
- Martin Clayton (Yorkshire First)
- Mike Cooper (National Front)
- Val Hoodless (Social Democratic Party)
- Christine Mackay (Conservative)
- David Nolan (Liberal Democrats)
- Karl Turner (Labour)
- Sarah Walpole ( Green)
Hull City Council has apologised for a printing error which saw two parliamentary candidates missing from postal ballot papers sent out to constituents.
Around 484 people living in east Hull who registered to vote by post after 1 April 2015 were sent out the ballot paper with the printing error.
Hull East Constituency candidates Karl Turner, standing for Labour, and Sarah Walpole, standing for the Green Party were missing from the ballot papers.
The council says ballot papers are being re-issued with a slip explaining the error.
The Green Party says it is becoming increasingly confident about winning a European seat in Yorkshire and the Humber region.
Counting has almost finished in Leeds, where ITV Political Correspondent Paul Brand says early indications show that UKIP and the Labour Party are in the lead, with the Greens, Tories and Lib Dems battling for third.
Results from 21 local authorities across the Yorkshire and the Humber region will be sent to Leeds and will be added together to produce a final result.
