Voter ID at polling stations
The UK government has made significant changes to the current electoral system. The Elections Act 2022 outlines several measures which will affect the way you vote and how we conduct elections.
One of the biggest changes will be the requirement for voters to show photo ID to vote at polling stations in some elections.
From 4 May 2023, 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 do not have accepted photo ID, you can apply for a free voter ID document, which is known as a Voter Authority Certificate.
For more information, see our voter ID page.
Voter ID supplementary equipment
All polling stations will contain the following equipment:
- Privacy screen/area (for voters with face coverings)
- Mirror (allows the voter to re-adjust their face covering before leaving the privacy screen area)
Accessibility at polling stations
The new Elections Act also introduces measures to make it easier for voters with disabilities to vote. The changes will be in place for the May 2023 elections. Voters with disabilities will be given extra support at polling stations, and proposals will allow anyone over the age of 18 to act as a companion for a voter with a disability.
All buildings used as a polling station are wheelchair accessible. All polling stations will also have:
- a polling booth adapted for wheelchair users
- large print versions of the ballot papers
- an A4 size ‘how to vote’ poster in braille within the voting booth
- equipment readily available to allow blind and partial sighted voters to mark their ballot papers without help. When you approach the issuing desk, please request for a ballot paper voting aid to assist you in voting.
- pencils and pencil grips to use when marking the ballot paper, or you can use your own pen or pencil
If you are a disabled voter and you need support to complete your ballot paper(s), you can take a friend or relative (over the age of 18) to the polling station to help you. The Presiding Officer can also assist on request.
Guide or assistant dogs are allowed in polling stations.
If you do not want to go to the polling station to vote, you can vote by post. Postal voters are not required to provide photo ID.
Voting at the polling station
When you arrive at the polling station, you will be greeted by a member of the polling staff. They will check you have the correct photo ID before you go to the ballot paper issuing desk.
At the desk, you will be asked for your address and full name.
Then you will be asked to present your photo ID. At this stage, the poll clerk will be checking your photo ID against you for likeness. If you wear a face covering, access to a privacy screen will be provided on request.
The Polling Clerk will then explain how to vote slowly and clearly, and you will be shown where and how to insert you ballot paper into the ballot box. Each polling booth will have a guide on ‘How to vote’ in English and in Braille.
You can then go to the next available voting booth. Mark your preferred choice and fold your ballot paper and place in the ballot box. Then exit the polling station.
Please note: you cannot use mobile phones or take photos within the polling station.
