People in Bradford handed voter photo ID law reminder ahead of elections
PEOPLE in the Bradford district have been reminded to bring photo identification if they visit a polling station for this spring’s elections.
Local elections are taking place in the Bradford district and across England on Thursday, May 4, with a new requirement set to start for in-person voters.
The UK Government has introduced a requirement for voters to show photo ID when voting at a polling station at some elections. This new requirement will apply for the first time in England at the local elections on May 4.
Passport, Driving licence (including provisional licence) and blue badge are some of the forms of photo ID which will be accepted at polling stations.
Elections are happening across England on 4 May.
Voting at a polling station? Don’t forget to bring photo ID.
