The running of polls is a matter for independent Returning Officers. The Electoral Commission provides guidance and resources for Returning Officers administering European Parliamentary elections on its website.

It is for Returning Officers to contract with suppliers and service providers for the production and distribution of items like poll cards and postal votes. Delivery times would depend on a number of factors including the recipient’s location.
