Warwick district voters urged to remember their ID

Leamington Editorial 26th Apr, 2024   0

RESIDENTS in Warwick district are being urged to remember their ID when they go to vote on Thursday May 2.

Voters will need to show photo ID at polling stations before they can receive their ballot paper. Accepted forms of ID include a UK, European Economic Area, or Commonwealth passport; a UK or EEA driver’s licence; some concessionary travel passes, such as an older person’s bus pass or an Oyster 60+ card; and the free Voter Authority Certificate.

Voters will be able to use expired ID if they are still recognisable from the photo.

At polling stations, voters will be required to present ID to be checked by polling station staff. A private area will be available at the polling station for anyone who wants their photo ID viewed in private.

Chris Elliott, returning officer at Warwick District Council, said: “Make sure you’re ready for the Police and Crime Commissioner election and Leamington Clarendon by-election on May 2. Check that you’ve got an accepted form of ID and remember to bring it with you so that you don’t miss out on the opportunity to vote. If you need any help, you can contact the electoral services team on 01926 456105 or email [email protected].”

The full list of accepted ID are available on the Electoral Commission’s website.
