Don’t Forget - Photo ID Needed For Voting At Local Elections

April 18, 2023

Reminder!  Photo ID is now required to vote at a polling station for the local elections which will be taking place across England on 4 May.  You can now view the list of nominated candidates for both the Braintree district and parish elections on the BDC website.

If you don't have any of the accepted forms of photo ID, you can apply for a free voter ID document, known as a Voter Authority Certificate.
