Get Ready to Vote


Whatever you might be feeling about politics and politicians right now, you surely can’t ignore the fact that the people of the UK will be voting on 4 July for a new government – and we have a responsibility to take part.

In addition to making sure you have up-to-date photo ID, it’s a great time to get informed about who will best serve your community in the coming years.

In the north of the county, coming along to St Mary’s Church, 1 Main Street, Fishguard, on Friday 21 June at 6.30pm will give you an opportunity to hear what all the candidates have to say and to answer your questions.

Organiser Jeremy Martineau from Goodwick says: “We all have a part to play in choosing our next MP for the newly formed constituency of Ceredigion Preseli. Come to the hustings – where the candidates will set out what each of them offers and believes in.”

Unless you have a postal vote, you’ll need one of the following types of photo ID to vote at a polling station:

  • a UK or Northern Ireland photocard driving licence (full or provisional)
  • a driving licence issued by an EU country, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, the Isle of Man or any of the Channel Islands
