I wish to apply voting Mayoral and London

Resolved Question:

I wish to apply for postal voting for the Mayoral and London Assembly voting on 5.5.2016.
I do not wish to use the signature I use in contracts and bank as it will put it in public domain and worried about identity theft.
Is it legal to put a different signature in the application form for postal vote?
Thanks

In that case yes you can sign up and yes your signature can be differentBut please bear in mind your signature to the Local Authority will just as safe, if not safer than the bank etc. The Local Authority will have a number of processes and procedures in place to stop data being made public.But yes, you can use a different signature for the application and postal vote.BUT they must be the same on those two documents, but that signature can be different to your 'regular' signature.Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
