To be able to vote at a polling station, you will need to bring photo ID with you to vote in polling stations, this is a new requirement following changes to the law. If you don't have acceptable photo ID, you will not be able to vote.

If you don’t have photo ID, you will need to apply for a free Voter Authority Certificate by 5pm on Tuesday 25 April. It’s quick and easy to apply for a free Voter Authority Certificate, applying takes around 5 minutes.

Your ID needs to be the original. It cannot be a photocopy, or pictures of ID on mobile phones.

Acceptable ID can be:

  • A passport.
  • A driving licence (including provisional licence).
  • Blue Badge.
  • Identity card with PASS mark (Proof of Age Standards Scheme).
  • Certain concessionary travel cards.
  • Biometric immigration document.
  • Defence identity card.
  • National identity card.

If you have one of these IDs, but it is out of date, you can still use it to vote at a polling station if it still looks like you.

Other forms of ID are acceptable. The Electoral Commission website contains a full list of accepted forms of photo ID and further information about the introduction of voter ID.

If you don't have one of the accepted forms of photo ID, you will be able to apply for a free Voter Authority Certificate (VAC) which will be accepted in polling stations. To apply please visit the Gov.uk website by 5pm on Tuesday 25 April.

Postal voters will not be affected and will be issued with their postal ballot papers as usual. If you choose to vote by proxy then the person who will vote on your behalf will have to take their own photo ID to the polling station.

The address of your polling station will be on your poll card, which will be delivered from 27 March.

If you would like to check which polling station to use, please enter your postcode below. If there is a seat up for election in your area it will tell you where your polling station is. Please remember, there are not elections in every ward. You can also contact us, or call 01883 722000.


There are three ways to cast your vote:

  • In person: this means going to the polling station to vote on Thursday 4 May.
  • By post: this means we will send you a postal voting pack so you can complete your ballot paper at home and return it by post.
  • By proxy: this means appointing a person to vote on your behalf at your polling station.

You can quickly and easily apply to vote by post or proxy.

  • To vote by post, please download an application form from the Electoral Commission and send it to us by 5pm on Tuesday 18 April.
  • To vote by proxy, please download an application form from the Electoral Commission and send it to us by 5pm on Tuesday 25 April.

You can e-mail your completed form to us, or post it to:

Council Offices
8 Station Road East

Polling cards will look different this year. They’ll be bigger, containing information about the need to bring Voter ID and where your polling station is.

You don’t need to bring your polling card to vote on Thursday 4 May, but don't forget your photo ID.

To be able to vote you must be included in the Register of Electors. If you're not already registered, please complete an online application form on the GOV.uk website and submit it by Monday 17 April.

In partnership with Mencap, the Electoral Commission has developed easy read guides to voting in the local elections, for people with a learning disability. The guide includes information about registering to vote, voting by post or proxy voter identification requirements and what support people can have if they vote at a polling station.

Elections are currently taking place at a time when Covid-19 continues to present risks to public health. We are working hard with the Electoral Commission, the wider electoral community and public health authorities to help ensure you can stay safe when casting your vote.

Further information is also available in the voter section on the Electoral Commission website.

You may still wish to wear a mask when attending your polling station. Due to the introduction of Voter ID, you will be required to briefly remove your mask so your ID can be verified.
