Voter ID pilots for the local government elections in May 2018.
Voters in five local authorities will be required to show ID before they can vote in the local government elections in May 2018.
The voter ID pilots will take place in Woking, Gosport, Bromley, Watford and Slough.
These local authorities have volunteered to pilot voter ID and they, along with the Electoral Commission, the Association of Electoral Administrators, and a wider number of local authorities as part of a reference group, have been instrumental in designing and shaping how voter ID will work in each area.
