Voter ID

Voting in General Election – Make Sure Your Vote Counts! – Voter ID

No confirmation yet of when the General Election for Westminster seats will take place. Rishi Sunak
has hinted at some time in Autumn, however it could take place as early as Spring, if it suits the
Tories. Things are changing and you will need some form of ID to be able to vote in person. Make
sure you’re prepared or you will be unable to vote.

Which forms of ID are accepted?
– Passport
– Driving licence
– Blue Badge
– Scottish National Entitlement Card issued for the purpose of concessionary travel (including a
60+, disabled or under 22s bus pass)
– Identity card bearing the Proof of Age Standards Scheme hologram (a PASS card), for
example a Young Scot card

It needs to be the original, not a copy, but you can still use your photo ID if it’s out of date, as long
as it looks like you. The name on your ID should be the same name you used to register to vote.
