Don’t forget to bring voter ID to vote at the General Election on Thursday 4 July 2024.

Maidstone Borough Council (MBC) is reminding everyone who votes in a polling station of the wide range of photographic identification which will be acceptable at polling stations across the borough, these include:

  • Driver’s licences
  • Passports
  • Some concessionary travel passes
  • PASS cards
  • Ministry of Defence identity cards
  • Photocard parking permits issued as part of the Blue Badge scheme
  • Free Voter Cards, provided by local authorities

Expired photographic identification will also be accepted if the photograph is of a good enough likeness to allow polling station staff to confirm the identity of the holder.

Angela Woodhouse, Returning Officer for MBC said:

“We are reminding everyone who will be voting in a polling station on Thursday 4 July to bring the appropriate photo ID with them in order to place their vote.

“We want to make sure that everyone who has the right to vote can do so. It is important that everyone remembers to bring identification with them if they want to vote in person at the General Election.”
