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 Thursday 4 May 2023.
Which forms of ID can I use to vote?
You may already have a form of photo ID that is acceptable. You can use any of the following:
• 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
electoralcommission.org.uk/voterID or call their helpline on 0800 328 0280.
If you don’t have an accepted form 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 can apply for this at voter-authority-certificate.service.gov.uk. Alternatively, you can complete a paper application form and send this to the electoral services team at your local council. If you need any help with applying for a Voter Authority Certificate or want to request an application form, contact your local council. To find their contact details visit

Suffolk supports the cost of living
The Local Welfare Assistance Scheme helps those experiencing financial hardship, including
access to items like household furniture and white goods, fuel vouchers for electricity and
gas top-ups, supermarket vouchers, and contributions towards increasing costs during the
winter months. Local organisations across Suffolk can submit an application for support, on behalf of an
individual or family. These organisations include Citizens Advice Bureau, district and
borough councils, health services and voluntary organisations. A list of these organisations,
who will assess circumstances and submit applications, is available here.
