Voting on Thursday 4 May 2023

You need photo ID to vote at this May’s elections

The UK Government has introduced a requirement for voters to show photo ID when voting at a polling station at all elections in England.

This new requirement will apply for the first time in England at the local elections on Thursday 4 May 2023.  In Rushcliffe we will have Borough and Parish/Town Council elections taking place.

At these elections you will need to bring photo ID to be able to vote at a polling station. Those voting by postal vote do not need to provide ID.

Which forms of ID can I use to vote at a polling station?

You may already have a form of photo ID that is acceptable.  You can use any of the following:

  • Passport
  • Driving licence (including provisional license)
  • Blue badge
  • Certain concessionary travel cards
  • Identity card with PASS mark (Proof of Age Standards Scheme)
  • Biometric Immigration document
  • Defence identity card
  • Certain national identity cards

For more information on which forms of photo ID will be accepted, visit or call their helpline on 0800 328 0280.

If you have a form of accepted ID that is out of date but still looks like you, you can still use it to vote.

You must show the original version of your photo ID when voting and not a photocopy.

What if I don’t have an accepted form of photo ID?

If you don’t already have an accepted form of photo ID, or you’re not sure whether your photo ID still looks like you, you can apply for a free voter ID document, known as a Voter Authority Certificate.

You need to be registered to vote before you apply for a Voter Authority Certificate. If you are not registered to vote already, you can register online. The deadline to register to vote for the elections taking place in May is 11:59pm on Monday 17 April.

You can apply for a Voter Authority Certificate online.

Alternatively, you can complete a paper application form and send this to the Electoral Services team.  If you need any help applying for a Voter Authority Certificate or want to request an application form, contact the Electoral Services team by emailing or calling 0115 981 9911.

The deadline to apply for a Voter Authority Certificate for use at the elections taking place in May is 5pm on Tuesday 25 April, but you should apply as soon as possible in case we need to check any details with you.

What information do I need to give when I apply for a Voter Authority Certificate?

When applying for a Voter Authority Certificate, you will need to provide your:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Date of birth
  • National Insurance number

If you don’t know your National Insurance number, or don’t have one, you can still apply. However, we will contact you to request alternative proof of your identity.

You will also need to submit a passport type photograph with your application. 

You can visit our Customer Service Centre on Gordon Road in West Bridgford to assist you with your application including the photo you need to complete the application.

What will happen at the polling station?

When you arrive at the polling station, a member of staff will

  1. Ask you for your name and address so they can find you on the electoral register
  2. Ask for your photo ID or Voter Authority Certificate and check it is acceptable
  3. If your ID is acceptable, they will give you your ballot paper(s) and direct you to vote in a polling booth as usual

A private area will be available at the polling station, so you can choose to have your photo ID viewed in private if you like. This might be a separate room, or an area separated by a privacy screen, depending on the polling station.

Staff at the station are there to help. If you need assistance at any point, just ask.

How do I register to vote?

To vote in these elections, you must be registered to vote by 11:59pm on Monday 17 April.

If you’ve never registered, have recently moved to a different address, or changed your name, register to vote online at GOV.UK register-to-vote. You can also apply by completing a paper application form.

If you need help registering to vote, or want to request a paper application form, please contact the Electoral Services team by emailing or calling 0115 981 9911.

Are there other ways to vote?

You can apply to vote by post or by proxy (where you appoint someone to vote on your behalf).

In order to vote by post, you’ll need to complete a postal vote application form and make sure we receive it by 5pm on Tuesday 18 April.

In order to vote by proxy, you’ll need to complete a proxy vote application form and make sure we receive it by 5pm on Tuesday 25 April.

For more information or to get a postal or proxy application form, visit Electoral Commission or call their helpline on 0800 328 0280.

Do you need support accessing your polling station?

If you have any accessibility or support needs in order to be able to vote at your polling station, please let us know what help and support you need by emailing or call us on 0115 981 9911.
