Royal Mail has encouraged voters to send their postal ballots in good time ahead of the upcoming local elections.
Polls for Suffolk’s councils and a police and crime commissioner are due to take place on May 6.
As a result of the pandemic, many people are choosing to vote by post.
People have until May 4 to cast their vote.
However, Royal Mail and the Electoral Commission are reminding people to send their votes as early as they can to ensure they will be counted.
