Voter ID: If you aren't IN the general election, you can't help win it

Voter ID: If you aren’t IN the general election, you can’t help win it

Rishi Sunak has announced a general election on July 4, and this means you need voter ID: if you aren’t in the general election, you can’t help win it.

If you’re not interested in voting, then this will be academic to you. But if you don’t vote, don’t come out with any opinions about the state of the country afterwards; you’ll have had your chance to do something about it and passed it up.

If you are interested in voting, then you should be aware that the most recent Conservative government has tried to restrict the number of people who are able to vote by demanding that everybody attending a polling station must have a recognised form of photo identification with them.

The intention was to cut out voters who are likely to support other parties – but it caused hilarity at this year’s local elections when Boris Johnson, who was prime minister when the new voter ID rules became law, turned up to vote without any.

What do you need?

There are several forms of photo ID that will be accepted at polling stations:

  • a UK or Northern Ireland photocard driving licence (full or provisional)
  • a driving licence issued by an EU country, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, the Isle of Man or any of the Channel Islands
  • a UK passport
  • a passport issued by an EU country, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein or a Commonwealth country
  • a PASS card (National Proof of Age Standards Scheme)
  • a Blue Badge
  • a biometric residence permit (BRP)
  • a Defence Identity Card (MOD form 90)
  • a national identity card issued by the EU, Norway, Iceland or Liechtenstein
  • a Northern Ireland Electoral Identity Card
  • a Voter Authority Certificate
  • an Anonymous Elector’s Document

You can also use one of the following travel passes as photo ID when you vote:

Apparently you can still use one of these, even if it has expired – as long as the photo on it looks like you.

We have discovered that two forms of ID that can’t be used are

  • Armed forces veterans’ ID and
  • Student ID

Apparently Rishi Sunak wouldn’t allow the vets’ ID to be permitted because it would “open the floodgates” for students to use theirs – and this implies that he thinks students will vote his party out.

Students (and others): get your photo ID here!

So, for the benefit of students who are angered by Sunak’s attempt to stop you from voting – and anybody else who needs to know, you can get your photo ID via the government’s website, and all you need is a recent digital photo of yourself and your National Insurance number (or other documents to prove your identity, like a birth certificate, bank statement and/or utility bill).

If you care about the future of the UK – meaning your own future prosperity and that of your loved ones, then this is vitally important.
