Andrew Gwynne, MP for Denton and Reddish
, has backed the campaign to remind all voters of the new Voter ID rules ahead of local elections on May 2.

Changes to electoral law now require anyone voting in person at a polling station to present photographic ID.

Acceptable ID includes passports, driving licenses, blue badges, bus passes, with anyone without appropriate photo ID able to apply online for free voter ID by 5pm on Wednesday April 24.

Gwynne said: “These are a vital set of local elections that will have a real impact on the direction of our local communities for years to come.

“It is crucial that everyone is able to have their say, which if you’re voting in person, means having Voter ID.

“I would urge all those without valid ID to apply for free voter ID before the deadline, to ensure they can make their voice heard on May 2.”
