Weekly news from Newport City Council
Friday 19 February

Get ready for important elections in 2016

On Thursday 5 May 2016 voters in Wales will go to the polls for National Assembly for Wales and Police and Crime Commissioner elections.

 At the National Assembly for Wales election, residents of Newport will be able to vote for regional and constituency Assembly Members.

 These are the people responsible for presiding over a wide range of issues in Wales including health, education, and housing.

 The Police and Crime Commissioner oversees the running of the local police force, including appointing the Chief Constable, setting the local budget and deciding what the priorities should be for the police in their area.

 Will Godfrey, Electoral Registration Officer for Newport City Council said:

“Only people who are registered can take part in May’s elections. People living in Newport will need to register to make sure that they don’t miss out on voting on polling day.

 “Registering is easy and you can apply online at in just a few minutes. You will need your date of birth and national insurance number.”
