To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office, with reference to the Government's Voter ID plans, how voters will be asked to prove their identity to local authorities when applying for their free local elector ID.
11 March 2021
Local authorities will be responsible for issuing local elector identity documents.
We will continue to work with local authorities, the Electoral Commission, charities and civil society organisations to make sure that reforms, including the provision of a local elector identity document, are delivered in a way that is inclusive for all voters.
Further details will be set out in due course.
