It will be the law - If a person can not provide ID they will not be able to vote.

The Electoral Commission will be starting their advertising campaign and it will be ongoing until the election.

If a voter does not have valid ID, they can apply for a Voter Authority Certificate (VAC) at the website, in person at the Civic offices or by post. Details are enclosed in the leaflet. The service to apply for a VAC will not be live until Monday, 16th January 2023
