Vot­ing in 2016

Nuneaton Telegraph - - NEWS -

VOT­ERS across the whole of the UK will be able to go to the polls at least once in 2016 – twice if the ref­er­en­dum on EU mem­ber­ship takes place dur­ing the year.

A large set of di­verse elec­tions on Su­per Thurs­day on May 5 will give some 47 mil­lion reg­is­tered vot­ers the chance to vote in an un­prece­dented com­bined event just 12 months af­ter the gen­eral elec­tion.

The polls cover: Scot­tish Par­lia­ment ; Welsh As­sem­bly; North­ern Ire­land As­sem­bly; Lon­don As­sem­bly; Lon­don, Bris­tol, Liver­pool and Sal­ford may­ors; 124 English coun­cils; and 41 po­lice and crime com­mis­sion­ers in Eng­land and Wales.
