Are you registered?

The Police and Crime Commissioner elections will be held on Thursday 2 May.

If you aren't registered to vote, you have until midnight on Tuesday 16 April to register in time for the PCC elections. Register to vote 

It will also mean you are registered to vote in the next General Election, which will be held before the end of January 2025.

You must be 18 to vote in PCC and UK parliamentary elections.

The PCC elections will be the first time voters in Wales will be asked for photo ID at polling stations.

If you don't have an acceptable form of ID, you can apply for a free Voter Authority Certificate online. Help is available at your local Torfaen library.

You must apply by 5pm on Wednesday 24 April to receive your certificate in time for the PCC elections.

You will also need to show photo ID or a certificate to vote in the General Election.

There is also still time to apply for a postal vote for the PCC elections - apply by 5pm on Wednesday 17 April.  

If you vote by post, the rules around handing them into council offices have changed.

You can now hand in a maximum of six postal votes, including your own, to council buildings and you must complete a Return of Postal Voting Documents form.

Any postal votes posted through council building letterboxes or left at council buildings without the form being completed will be rejected.

The changes in voting only apply to PCC and UK parliamentary elections. Voters will not need to show voter ID to vote in Senedd or local government elections in Wales.
