No ID, no vote for electors in Woking

Voters across Woking Borough will need to show photographic identification before they can vote in person, at the polling station, at the next local election on Thursday 3 May 2018.

Woking, along with four other local authorities in England, is participating in the Cabinet Office’s trial, aimed at tackling electoral fraud.

During the local election on Thursday 3 May, voters must bring photographic ID to their polling station. Voters who do not produce valid identification will not be allowed to vote.

Voters who don’t have any of the accepted photographic ID must apply free of charge for a Local Elector Card, which is available to acquire right up until 5pm, Wednesday 2 May 2018. Postal votes are not affected by the trial.

For more information on this important trial, to view the list of accepted forms of photographic ID or to apply for a Local Elector Card, please visit www.woking.gov.uk/VoterID
