GET ACCEPTABLE IDENTIFICATION
Although there has been very little voter fraud in UK elections, the Conservative Government brought in voter identification legislation in 2022, making it difficult for some people, mainly young people, to vote. To ensure you have a right to vote, apply for a postal vote or make sure you have “acceptable ID” before the Local Elections (2nd May 2024) or the upcoming General Election. Make the Tories accountable for everything they’ve done during the last 14 years. Apply Here for your “Voter Authority Certificate”.
Note: Following the 2019 General Election there were 164 cases of voter fraud, from a registered electorate of 47.6 million. A very minor issue. Read the article on Voter ID.
APPY FOR A POSTAL VOTE
If you are unable to get to your polling station on polling day, you can apply to have your ballot paper sent to you in advance. You do not have to give a reason why when you apply, but you must be registered to vote. You can choose to vote by post simply because you think that it would be more convenient for you. Your application to vote by post lasts for three years or you can apply for a particular election, depending on your individual circumstances. For example, you may be going away on holiday on polling day.
Postal voting packs are not sent out immediately after you apply. They are posted two to three weeks before polling day in batches and must travel through the postal system, so if you are going away, it is important to think about whether you will still be at home when it arrives. Apply here to Stroud District Council for a Postal Vote.
APPY FOR A PROXY VOTE
You can also get someone you trust to vote on your behalf. This is a Proxy Vote. Enquire about Proxy Voting
