The government has introduced a requirement for voters to show photo ID when voting at a polling station at some elections.
This will apply for the first time at the local elections on Thursday 4 May 2023, so please spread the word to your friends and family.
Accepted forms of photo ID will include, but are not limited to, passport, driving licence (including provisional license), disabled parking blue badge, certain concessionary travel cards and proof of age cards with a PASS mark.
Anyone who doesn’t have accepted photo ID can apply on the government’s website now for a free voter ID document, known as a Voter Authority Certificate.
For more information, visit the Electoral Commission website or call their helpline on 0800 328 0280.
