Vale of Glamorgan: Postal error causes concern in marginal

By Sam Dale

Thousands of votes may not count in the marginal Vale of Glamorgan seat after a basic error in postal voting.

Voters were advised that a signature was not required on their voting slips but without it the form will not be counted.

The council has sent out emergency forms to all those who received the misleading forms.

The marginal constituency is a key Conservative target while Labour are fighting to keep control.

Both parties have expressed concern and disappointment over the administrative failure.
