Residents in Pendle are being reminded that they will be voting in a new constituency.

The new Pendle and Clitheroe constituency will include 10 wards from the Ribble Valley, including the town of Clitheroe, along with most of Pendle.

Pendle Council’s chief executive and acting returning officer, Rose Rouse, said: “New constituency boundaries have been redrawn to reflect population changes and distribute the number of voters more equally.

“Most residents will now vote in the Pendle and Clitheroe constituency but those in Brierfield East & Clover Hill and Brierfield West & Reedley will vote in the Burnley constituency.”

The 2024 general election takes place on Thursday, July 4.

Pendle Council’s elections and registration manager,  Andrea Mullin, added: “The constituency you’ll vote in will be on your poll card which will be delivered to everyone who is registered to vote in Pendle.

“The card will also tell you where your polling station is, as well as how to vote by post or proxy, if you are unable to vote in person.

“If you choose to vote in person, don’t forget you now have to show photo ID.”

A list of accepted ID, which includes passports, driving licences and bus passes, is set out on the back of the poll cards.

Anyone without an accepted form of photo ID can apply for a Voter Authority Certificate.

The deadline to register to vote is 11.59pm on Tuesday, June 18, and the deadline to apply for a postal vote is 5pm on Wednesday 19.

The deadline to apply for a proxy vote is 5pm on Wednesday 26, as is the final day to apply for a Voter Authority Certificate.
