Erewash residents are being reminded that they do not need any photo I.D in order to vote in next month’s borough elections.
As long as people are registered to vote they can do so as they normally would. The clarification comes as two pilot schemes running in Derby and Broxtowe will see voters required to show photo I.D in order to vote in their local elections.
The 2 May elections will see voters elect 47 borough councillors in total and those elected will represent a total of 19 wards across the borough. Parish council elections will also take place.
Residents who still need to register to vote can do so easily and quickly online at www.gov.uk/register-to-vote before the deadline of Friday 12 April.
Election results will be published on the council’s website as soon as they are announced.
