This year the laws around voting in UK parliamentary elections, local elections, and the elections for Mayor of London and London Assembly have changed. The biggest change to the way we vote is the requirement to show an accepted form of photo Voter ID to vote in person.
Since May 2023, voters are required to present photo identification to vote in elections. Only certain forms of photo ID can be used to vote. You can still vote by post without using a photo ID.
Between now and February 2024 we will be holding a number of free sessions in Barnet to help raise awareness about this new voting requirement.
We will be able to:
- Explain the voting changes
- Identify if your current photo ID is accepted to vote
- Help you apply for a free Voter Authority Certificate or other forms of accepted photo Voter ID
- Answer any questions about the changes to election law
Please look out for news about these sessions and register to attend if you can.
