Well, we got our form in (admittedly it was on the 20th, for which I am also embarrassed) and the council are saying we submitted it too late. We know it got there on time as we handed it to them ourselves.
I asked the lady on the phone if we were the only people ringing up to complain about this and she didn’t reply and said she’ll escalate it to her boss, although “he’s very busy”.
They were able to sent my wife and I a letter to say we were too late 11 days before the election. How does that work? To say I’m a little outraged is an understatement. They just don’t care!
