Voter ID

Residents of Wokingham Borough now need to show photographic ID to vote at elections. This includes the local and Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) elections on Thursday 2 May.

Get your Photo ID ready

Make sure you are ready to vote by checking that you have an accepted form of ID and remember to bring it with you on polling day. Bringing a poll card by itself will not entitle you to vote. If you do not have an accepted form of ID, you can apply for a free Voter Authority Certificate.

Register to vote by 16 April

If you want to have your say at the local elections, you must also be registered to vote. It only takes 5 minutes to register online and anyone wishing to apply for free voter ID should make sure they are registered to vote. The deadline is 11.59pm on Tuesday 16 April.

More information

More information is available on the supporting all residents to vote page, along with answers to common questions you may have.

There is also more information on the Electoral Commission's website or you can download a leaflet to find out more. You can also download an easy-read version of the leaflet.
