From 4 May 2023, voters in England will need to show photo ID to vote at polling stations in some elections.
This change applies to:
- Local elections
- Police and crime commissioner elections
- UK parliamentary by-elections
- Recall petitions.
From October 2023, this will also apply to UK general elections.
If you do not own a valid form of ID, you can apply for a free voter ID document, which is known as a Voter Authority Certificate.
You can read more on the electoral commission website.
