Paper Ballot – if you didn’t register before 20th July, and would like to print your own ballots our PRESS version is suitable for commercial printers. The cheapest we’ve found for A6 90gsm ballots is through www.quattroprint.co.uk/ and standard delivery takes around 6 days from order.

Symbol/Widget Ballot- special thanks goes to Hannah Powell (BaNES MYP) and Jasmin Miller (BaNES Youth Forum), and Of The Record BaNEs for creating this resource
