From Herefordshire Council:

Data released today by Herefordshire Council shows the number of people who brought ID to the polling station for local elections on 4 May.

The data shows that 99.8% of electors who came to vote in Herefordshire polling stations brought photo ID that met newly introduced voter ID requirements.

There were 147,552 electors across the county who were eligible to vote on 4 May, of these, 55,044 electors voted. There were 181 polling stations.

At the end of polling day, 70 electors who tried to vote in a polling station were not given a ballot paper because they did not meet the new voter ID requirements – 0.2%.

The figures also show while 118 electors were initially turned away, 48 returned with acceptable ID and were able to vote. This means 40.7% of those initially turned away returned and were issued with a ballot paper.

The overall voter turnout at the election was 37.3%.
