   You now need photo ID to vote at a polling station.     21 February, 2023

The UK Government has introduced a requirement for voters to show photo ID when voting at a polling station at some elections.

This new requirement will apply for the first time at the local elections taking place in some areas of England on Thursday 4 May 2023.

The requirement will apply to UK Parliament general elections from October 2023, and to UK Parliament by-elections and recall petitions from May 2023.

It will not apply at Scottish Parliament, Welsh Senedd, or council elections taking place in Scotland or Wales.

No ID ? You can apply for free voter ID. Find out more at electoralcommission.org.uk/voterID
