Polling stations open from 7am to 10pm tomorrow (Thursday 4 May) for Nottingham residents to vote in the City Council election.
The election involves all 55 seats at the City Council. A full list of candidates and polling station locations is available here.
Nottingham residents are reminded that due to a new Government requirement, voters will need to show photo ID at polling stations for the first time this year. Accepted forms of ID include a UK, European Economic Area (EEA) or Commonwealth passport; a UK or EEA drivers’ licence; and some concessionary travel passes, such as an older person’s bus pass or an Oyster 60+ card; or a Voter Authority Certificate if a completed application was received by 5pm last Tuesday. Voters will be able to use expired ID if they are still recognisable from the photo. More information is available here.
Melbourne Barrett, Returning Officer at Nottingham City Council, said:
“Local elections are a vital part of the democratic process and the opportunity for residents to have their say about who represents them on the council for the next four years.
“For the City Council elections taking place in Nottingham on 4 May 2023, it is important that those who want to vote at a polling station make sure they have an accepted form of ID. Due to this new Government requirement, residents attending polling stations who do not have one of the accepted forms of ID will not be able to vote.”
