The deadline to apply for a Voter Authority Certificate is 5pm on Tuesday 25 April, 2023.
The City of Wolverhampton Council is holding free drop-in sessions starting this Monday 8 March at the Civic Centre to help people apply for their free voter authority certificate (VAC) if they require one to vote in the forthcoming elections on Thursday 4 May.
For the time voters must provide acceptable photo identification in the polling station before being issued with their ballot paper and people can visit the Civic Centre Monday to Friday from 10am until 3pm with no requirement to book for help.
Advisors will be on hand to help complete applications, including taking a photograph which meets the guidelines and requirements. There is also help with registering to vote to enable VAC application. Applicants should be able to provide their National Insurance Number but it’s still possible to complete the process if unable to remember it.
The deadline to apply for a Voter Authority Certificate is 5pm on Tuesday 25 April 2023.
