East Londonderry MP Gregory Campbell has welcomed an Electoral Registration and I.D. event at Coleraine Library.
The event will take place next Wednesday, March 2, from 2.30 to 5.30pm.
Mr Campbell said: “Quite a few people at the last election were not properly registered, some people did not have the correct I.D. to vote.
“The event at Coleraine Library will provide all necessary facilities for Electoral Registration and an Electoral Identity Card for those who attend.
“This will also be an opportunity to get advice on, and apply for, a Permanent Postal Vote for those who meet the Electoral Offices criteria.
“The event will also be of particular interest to people who have recently moved house or turned 18. Young people particularly should be aware that the electoral card can also be used for identification at many venues and quite a few airlines accept it at their check in desks.
“For any queries about Electoral I.D. cards or any other Electoral Registration issues please contact the MP Constituency Office on 028 703 27327.”
Mr Cambell concluded: “In order to speed up the registration process I would urge you, where possible, to bring
- I.D. you may have (i.e. Passport, Driving License, Birth Certificate, Citizen Card)
-a Utility Bill or Bank Statement including your name and address.
-You will also need to know your National Insurance Number.”
