Election announced for Thursday 2nd May

Telford will go to the polls in around 6 weeks time, but voters need to be aware of the new rules regarding eligibility.

It’s not an MP you will be voting for this time though, it’s for a new Police and Crime Commissioner for West Mercia.

Even though it’s not the General Election, David Sidaway, Returning Officer for West Mercia, said: “Following the government’s introduction of new legislation concerning Voter ID, proxy voting and other matters relating to elections, I would encourage everyone to visit www.electoralcommission.org.uk/voterID ahead of polling day so that they’re aware of any changes that might affect them. The site also includes useful information about registering to vote.”
