Voter ID

I’m a postal voter or proxy voter, what about me?

Postal voters will not be affected by the introduction of photo ID, and you will continue to receive your postal vote pack through the post.

If you choose to vote by proxy, where you appoint someone you trust to vote on your behalf, your proxy will need to take their own photo ID to be issued with a ballot paper. However, if you decide to cast your own vote, you will need to have photo ID with you when you go to the polling station.
