Voter ID

From 4 May 2023, voters in England will need to show photo ID to vote at polling stations in some elections.

and, with effect from October 2023, to UK General elections.

Visit the Electoral Commission website to check if you have an accepted form of photo ID.

Whichever form of photo you take along to the polling station please ensure it does look like you – check with a friend or family member in advance of polling day and remember that only originals will be accepted (no scan or photocopies!).

If you are on the electoral roll and don’t have an eligible form of photo ID, you can apply for a free voter ID document, which is known as a Voter Authority Certificate. Don’t delay – apply now.

As not every Buckland resident is currently on the electoral roll, please consider whether you might be one of the residents who has not yet registered. If you know you are not on the electoral roll please take a few minutes now to register to vote. If you do not know whether you are on the electoral roll you can call the MVDC Elections team on 01306 879198 for assistance.
