McLaughlin makes call on Voter ID

16 November, 2003

Sinn Féin Chairperson Mitchel McLaughlin has urged voters to ensure that they have the correct forms of identification to enable them to claim their vote in the Assembly elections. Mr. McLaughlin's call comes the day before the deadline for claiming the special electoral identity card.

Mr. McLaughlin said:

"Given the absolute mess which the electoral office made in compiling the register under which the election will be fought it is crucial for those who have managed to access the register that they have the correct form of ID.

"Tomorrow is the final day for people wishing to claim the electoral identity card from the electoral office and I would urge those who do not have a passport, driving licence or Translink smart card to make sure that they claim their voter ID." ENDS
