Wrexham.com for people living in or visiting the Wrexham area

Time is running out to make sure that you are registered to vote in the upcoming General Election.

On July 4 thousands of voters across the county borough will head to the polls to have their say on who will be the next Member of Parliament for Wrexham and the newly created Montgomeryshire and Glyndwr and Clwyd East constituencies.

Registering to vote is quick and easy – but the deadline to do so is 11:59pm this evening (Tuesday 18 June).

In Wales you can register to vote if you are aged 14 or over and if you’re a British citizen, Irish citizen or a citizen of an EU country.

However you must be aged 18 or over to be eligible to vote in the July General Election.

You can also register if you have permission to enter or stay in the UK, Channel Islands or Isle of Man, or you do not need permission.

You can register to vote in the General Election here.

Photo ID

Voters in this election will also be required to present photo ID when they head to a polling station.

You can still use your photo ID if it’s out of date, as long as it looks like you. You can check the list of whats accepted as photo ID here.

If you don’t have photo ID, you no longer look like your photo ID image or your name on your ID is different to that on the electoral register than you can apply for a Voter Authority Certificate.

The last chance to do so is June 25.

You can find out more about eligible forms of photo ID here. You can apply for a Voter Authority Certificate here.
