Please be advised of the following notice advised by Cherwell District Council.
RE: Voter ID requirement
In our last Parish Bulletin we wrote with a reminder about the new government requirement for voters to show an accepted form of photo ID when they vote at the polling station.
This will apply for the first time when the local council elections happen on Thursday 4 May.
You will appreciate how important it is that we make our residents aware of this.
The poster is part of a package of materials which have been prepared by the Electoral Commission for use by local councils.
In additional to the attached poster, a range of other information can be downloaded by visiting the above link, including materials translated into other languages.
For further information about Voter ID, what your residents may need to do next, and which forms of photo ID will be accepted at polling stations, please visit our website. Please do feel free to add this link to your own websites.
If you have any queries about how you can help raise awareness of the Voter ID requirement, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to assist.
