Re: Voting - Canton BE

Your location says UK. Might be a bit difficult to get a new voter ID card as the instruction for the City of Bern says you must get a new on in person:

Quote:
Stimmrechtsausweis
Wenn Sie Ihren Stimmrechtsausweis verloren oder nicht erhalten haben, können Sie beim Stimmregister bis am Freitag, 17.00 Uhr, vor dem Abstimmungs- oder Wahltag ein Doppel des Ausweises verlangen. Das Doppel des Stimmrechtsausweises ist beim Stimmregister persönlich abzuholen. Bitte bringen Sie einen Personalausweis (Identitätskarte oder Pass) mit.

Adress: Erlacherhof/Junkerngasse 47

Here a picture of the voter ID card, see step 3

I don't seem to have anything like that in my envelope
That's kind of strange. How did the letter reach you? How was your letter addressed?

Normally the voter ID card has not only a return address but also your own address, and the address is visible through the window of the envelope. In addition the envelope in which the material was send can also be used for return the ballot. To send it back you simply swap the voter ID card such that the return address is visible in the window of the envelop, close it, post it (in some communes the envelope is even pre-paid), done.
