Five days remaining to apply for Voter ID



Voters without photo ID have five days to apply for a Voter Authority Certificate, with local elections now less than a month away.

As photo ID now required for all future elections, anyone without valid photo ID can apply for the free certificate here before 5pm on Tuesday 25 April.

Director of Legal Services and Partnerships, Ian Anderson said:

“As the voter ID requirement is new for 2023, it is important to remind electors to apply if they do not hold one of the valid forms required.

“It has never been more important to vote and these local elections are the opportunity for residents to have their say on who represents them on Hull City Council, dealing with decisions and issues that directly affect day-to-day life in Hull.”

Accepted forms of ID include a passport, photocard driving licence, blue badge and some concessionary bus passes. A full list can be found here.

Anyone who does not have one of the accepted forms of ID can apply for free here or by visiting the Wilson Centre in Hull city centre by 5pm, Tuesday 25 April.
