From 4 May 2023, voters in England will need to show photo ID to vote at polling stations in some elections.
This will apply to: Local elections, Police and Crime Commissioner elections, UK parliamentary by-elections & Recall petitions.
From October 2023 it will also apply to UK General elections.
If you don't have accepted photo ID, you can apply for a free voter ID document, which is known as a Voter Authority Certificate.
