Brits are off to the polls in the present day with stations open from 7am till 10pm, and opposite to what many individuals suppose, you need not deliver your polling card with you to solid your poll.

However, there may be one form of doc you will want with the intention to vote: photograph ID.

Since May 2023, British voters have wanted to deliver with them a legitimate type of photograph ID with the intention to put their X in a field. The guidelines apply to normal elections, native elections, referendums and by-elections, and votes for police and crime commissioners.

Although the rule has been in place for a while, a number of voters have taken to social media to complain that they are unable to vote as a result of they do not have the proper identification.

Bemoaning the system, one offended voter wrote on X: “Aww so my bus pass photo ID has not come thru [sic]… have passport in my maiden name so looks like i cant [sic] vote tomorrow”.

Another mentioned: “I WANT TO VOTE i cant because i don’t have id [sic]”.

While a 3rd wrote: “Because my mom made me go and get my passport renewed so now i don’t have any photo ID so i cant vote [sic]”.
