GE2019 postal vote data

The request was refused by Wigan Metropolitan Borough Council.

Dear Wigan Metropolitan Borough Council,

I would like to make an FOI request for voter data from the 12th December 2019 General Election. Specifically, I would like the following info:

- how many people were registered to vote by post in your constituency?
- how many postal votes were received?
- how many votes were marked as invalid?
- what was the result of the postal vote by party? If easier, just including the top 3 parties is fine.

I look forward to your reply.

Yours faithfully,

Donovan Kiddick

FoI Request, Wigan Metropolitan Borough Council
