Polls are now open in the Rochdale by-election

Polls are now open in the Rochdale by-election.

They will remain open until 10pm today (29th February 2024)

If you are a resident of Rochdale YOU WILL NEED ID TO VOTE. Details of the approved forms of ID and other details of polling stations can be found on the Rochdale Borough Council website at

Polling stations | Rochdale Borough Council

If you have a postal vote and have not yet returned it you can still vote by completing your postal vote and handing it in at any polling station

There is no official Labour candidate in the election because the candidate who Labour originally nominated, was - eventually - dropped by the party after making comments supporting an absurd Anti-Semitic conspiracy theory.

The candidate admitted that his comments had been  "deeply offensive, ignorant and false."

The comments came to light too late for him to be removed from the ballot so he is still standing.

The Conservative candidate in the election is Paul Ellison.

Good luck today Paul: if people in Rochdale want a fresh start and someone who can work with Government and be a great representative for Rochdale then they should vote for Paul Ellison
