Photo ID for voting

From 4 May 2023, you will need to show photo identification (ID) to vote at a polling station. Use these pages to find out how this will affect you.

Most people will already have proof of identity which you can use at the polling station. Select the button below to check if the ID you have is accepted. If you have no accepted form of photo ID, you can apply for a free Voter Authority Certificate.
