Voter ID Data for Warwick District

99.95% of electors who came to vote in Warwick District Council’s polling stations brought photo ID, which met the newly introduced voter ID requirements. 

Collated figures across the area show 28,432 electors voted at 126 polling stations on 4 May.

In summary, 14 electors (0.05%) who attended a polling station to vote were not given a ballot paper because they did not meet the new voter ID requirements.

Across all polling stations, 106 electors were initially turned away throughout the day and 92 returned with acceptable ID and were able to vote. This means 86.79% of those initially turned away returned later in the day and were issued with a ballot paper.
