Herefordshire Council have released a video reminding all potential voters that from May 4, 2023, voters in England will need to show photo ID to vote at polling stations in some elections.

This will apply to: local elections, police and crime commissioner elections, UK parliamentary by-elections, and recall petitions.

From October 2023 it will also apply to UK General elections.

If you don't have accepted photo ID, you can apply for a free voter ID document, which is known as a voter authority certificate.

Find out more about accepted forms of photo ID, how to apply for a free voter authority certificate, and what to expect on polling day.

More information about the voter ID rules can be found on the electoral commission website.
