Photo ID will be needed to vote in May elections


For the first time, residents in England will need to show photographic ID at polling stations to vote at this year's local elections.

Accepted forms of ID include a UK, European Economic Area (EEA) or Commonwealth passport; a UK, EEA or Commonwealth drivers' licence; and some concessionary travel passes, such as an older person's bus pass or an Oyster 60+ card.

Voters will be able to use expired ID if they are still recognisable from the photo.


Residents who do not have one of the accepted forms of ID can apply for free ID either online or by completing a paper application form and sending this to Breckland Council's electoral services team. If you need any help with applying for the free ID or want to request an application form, contact the electoral services team via  or call 01362 656 870.

​The requirement to show photo ID at the polling station, is a new requirement, introduced by the UK Government's Elections Act which was passed last year and comes into effect for the first time this May.
