Voter ID at Polling Stations

Following the passing of the Elections Act 2022, from 4 May 2023, individuals who wish to vote in person, including those acting as a proxy on behalf of another individual, will be required to produce an accepted form of photographic ID to prove their identity before they can be issued with a ballot paper.

This will apply at:

  • UK parliamentary by-elections 
  • Recall petitions
  • Police and Crime Commissioner elections
  • Local government elections in England
