In the UK there are three different ways you can vote:
You can find out how to vote on The Electoral Commission web site: www.electoralcommission.org.uk/i-am-a/voter
If you are planning to vote at a polling station you will need to show photographic ID.
Accepted ID includes a passport, driver’s licence, blue badge and some concessionary travel passes, such as an older person’s bus pass. You can use expired ID if you’re still recognisable from the photo.
If you don't have an accepted form of photo ID, you can apply for a free voter ID document, known as a Voter Authority Certificate.
A full list of accepted ID and information on how to apply for a Voter Authority Certificate is available here: www.electoralcommission.org.uk/i-am-a/voter/voter-id/accepted-forms-photo-id
You will not need ID to vote by post.
You can search for your postcode on the Rochdale Council web site to find out which ward you live in and who your local councillors are:
