The Elections Act

The government recently passed an Act that changes the way you experience elections. The Act covers multiple areas, including:

  • introducing voter ID at polling stations
  • changes to postal and proxy voting
  • improving the accessibility of polling stations
  • changes to overseas voting
  • changes for campaigners and spending donation rules

These changes could come into force for our elections to be held in 2023 and elections after this.

You can read details of the Act .

You can also read a summary of the Act from the Electoral Commission.
