Local Elections 2023
On Thursday 4 May 2023, local elections are taking place across England. To vote at a polling station, you will need to bring photo ID.
Voter ID requirement
From 4 May 2023, voters in England will need to show photo ID to vote at polling stations in some elections.
This will apply to:
