YES WE CANS!

Are YOU prepared to vote in the Mayoral Elections on 2nd May? Get registered. Get photo ID. Get heard.

As mayoral elections approach on 2nd May, research from YouGov for Brixton Brewery has discovered a worrying lack of knowledge about how the elections will work and people’s eligibility to vote. In response we're once more gathering the spirit of Brixton and its people to put the power to as many people as possible. No vote = no voice, and we believe that every voice counts!

To help do our bit, we've rebranded our most popular beer, Reliance Pale Ale, as YES WE CANS (see what we did there!?) to encourage as many people as possible to get ready to vote on 2nd May. This LTD EDN can will be subbed in for ALL orders of Reliance placed on our website between now and 2nd May - but don't worry, the beer is still the same tasty pale ale you know and love.

INTRODUCING SNAPPY HOUR...

We’ve partnered with a few of our favourite pubs in London, Liverpool and Manchester to launch pop up photo-booths where anyone in need of ID can come and get their picture taken absolutely free of charge.

WHERE YOU CAN GET YOUR FREE PHOTO:

Snappy Hour will take place from 6pm - 10pm on the following dates...

Liverpool (27th March & 3rd April) - The Cavern Pub

Manchester (28th March) - The Rising Sun

London (29th March & 5th April) - Vaulty Towers

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Local elections in the UK are on 2nd May. 

Mayoral elections and Police and Crime Commissioner elections previously used the Supplementary Vote (SV) system, where voters could choose a first and second choice vote. Now, voters will choose a single candidate on the ballot paper. This is the same system as UK Parliamentary elections and local elections in England.

You can find out more details using these handy links:

The Electoral Commission

It’s also worth noting that you can still use a photo ID that is out of date, but the photo needs to look like you. Your name must be the same one you registered with to vote. You do not need photo ID if you are registered for postal voting. If you do not have an accepted form of Photo ID you can apply for a Voter Authority Certificate here.
