Key dates for the local elections

We have two elections on the 2nd May. You can vote for your local councillor (please support Emma Flint) and for the Mayor (Tracy Brabin). So you get two for one!

Please share this guide with all the new or out of practice voters in your life.

How to register to vote

It's dead easy and only takes 5 minutes. You can do it online here. You'll just need to know your National Insurance number.

The deadline to register is the 16th of April.

In the 2nd May local election all EU and British citizens can vote.

How to get a postal vote

The deadline to apply for a postal vote is 5pm on 17th April and you can apply for one here.

How to vote in person

If you don't have a postal vote you can only vote in person at a 'polling station'. There's one in every neighbourhood. You'll have to bring some photo ID such as a passport or a driving licence. If you don't have photo ID you can apply for a free photo ID here.

And as always, thank you for your support. We need it to continue with the important work that you've signed up to this newsletter to hear about.
