Tim Sadler, Oxford City Council’s electoral registration and returning officer, said:
“Due to an error by the printing firm, some household electoral registration packs, known as Household Enquiry Forms, that were delivered to residents earlier this week have the wrong reply envelope within them – addressed to York Council rather than Oxford. Sampling so far suggests this only affects some residents in Cowley and Cowley Marsh.
“If you have received one of the inaccurate reply envelopes, please confirm the details of eligible voters at your address on the Household Response website for Oxford, use the telephone reply system or wait for a replacement pack to be delivered. The replacement packs, which will be paid for by the printing firm, will be delivered as soon as they are available.”
