Braintree Local Elections are on 2nd May - Make sure you bring ID!

28/02/2019 About 1 minute

Today we've started our campaign to spread the message that residents in the Braintree District will have to bring one piece of photo ID or two pieces of non-photo ID when voting in polling stations for the local elections on 2nd May 2019.

This can either be:

- one piece of photo ID such as a passport, photo-driving licence or bus pass. OR
- two pieces of non-photo ID such as a poll card, Council tax bill, utility bill, bank/building society/credit card statement or debit/credit card.

Other pieces of ID will also be accepted. You can view the full list of approved ID on our website. Anyone without the required ID cam apply to us for an Electoral Identity Document.

Our Elections Team are on hand if you have any concerns or queries - you can either call them on 01376 552525 or email voterid@braintree.gov.uk
