Voter ID

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:
