The Electoral Commission reported that there were 1,386 cases of alleged electoral fraud reported to police between 2018 and 2022. These resulted in 9 convictions and 6 cautions. Despite the figures being low, the Conservative Government introduced "The Voter Identification Regulations 2022", to cut down on *voter fraud.

From May 2023 you must have an accepted photo ID if you intend to vote in person. If you don't have any accepted photo ID, you will be turned away and not allowed to vote. Due to a tightening of the rules, if your looks have changed since the photo was taken, you can still be turned away.

If a greeter at a polling station tries to turn you away at the door or outside the polling station, politely refuse their request. The fact you have been turned away can only be counted at the ballot issuing desk, not by a greeter.


Check exactly what is 'accepted photo ID' on the uk.gov website.


You can apply for a free voter authority certificate from the electoral commission.


If you or a family member are reluctant to go down the polling station, why not apply for a postal vote?


* Following the local elections in May 2023, Jacob Rees-Mogg accused Labour of gerrymandering. He then went on to suggest the Conservatives introduced voter ID to boost their election chances, but it came "back to bite them". Rishi Sunak denied this was the case.
